HMS ARNO DESTROYER SHIPWRECK:
Unfortunately, it was very hard to get any information about Arno destroyer. Only in a few sources, her name passes. One of these are as follows:
In 7th of August 1915, Hamilton had exercised no influence whatever over the Suvla operation, being too preoccupied with the desperate struggle going on at Anzac. But as the morning of the 8th wore on he became uneasy about Suvla and decided to go and see for himself. At 11.30 am he ordered the Arno, the destroyer set aside for his own personal use, "for mid-day sharp". But to his intense irritation he was told that the destroyer had developed a boiler problem and was out of action. Only after a five hour wait was he able to get a lift on another ship and he did not reach Suvla until after 6 pm when the dismal picture became apparent to him. You can see th telegraph about this event in the University of London. Hamilton:7/2/12 (Liddell Hart Centre For Military Archives.)
On 16th of February 1916, GOC left in HMS ARNO to visit STAVROS & SALONICA.
