About the Pictures Image Gallery
HMS Gorgon and her sister Glatton were two monitors originally built as coastal defence ships for the Royal Norwegian Navy, as HNoMS Nidaros and BjÃ¸rgvin respectively, by Armstrong Whitworth at Elswick. She was purchased from Norway at the beginning of World War I, but was not completed until 1918 although she had been launched over three years earlier. She engaged targets in Occupied Flanders for the last several months of the war and fired the last shots of the war against such targets on 15 October 1918. She was used as a target ship after several attempts to sell her had fallen through before being sold for scrap in 1928.
