NotesThe Renown was the Flagship of Admiral Fisher on the North Atlantic and, when he was transferred, the Mediterrenean stations. It was a very reliable ship liked by all who sailed on her. Her guns were mounted in protective shields, but even this innovation was not enough to allow her to be eclipsed by the Battleship technology of the Dreadnoughts.
