AFTER HIS FLAGSHIP HMS LION HAD BEEN HIT: SIR DAVID BEATTY ON THE BRIDGE OF THE DESTROYER HMS ATTACK APPROACHING HMS PRINCESS ROYAL TO HOIST HIS FLAG ON BOARD THE BATTLECRUISER - 'During the Dogger Bank fight on January 24th, his flagship LION having been crippled, Sir David Beatty, following battle custom under such circumstances, transferred his flag to another ship. Summoning the destroyer ATTACK alongside the LION, the Admiral boarded her, along with his Flag-Lieutenant, and then - for, of course, the other battkecruisers passed on, in chase of the enemy - hastened to overtake the squadron, eventually to hoist his flag in PRINCESS ROYAL. Admiral Beatty adds: 'The good seamanship of Lieutenant-Commander Cyril Callaghan, HMS ATTACK, in placing the vessel alongside LION, and subsequently PRINCESS ROYAL, enabled the transfer of flag to be made in the shortest possible time.' 'Everyone', says a letter from PRINCESS ROYAL, 'was cheering madly as he came on board.' One of a crowd of stokers on the upper deck, taking a rest after their strenuous toil in the stokehold at full speed, is declared 'to have patted the Admiral on the back as he came on board and said 'Well done, David, you're the man to thrash the Germans!.'
