LINNETT Maurice [Edward]

Leading Seamn J/8090, H.M.S. Vanguard, Royal Navy. Died 9th July 1917. Aged 23. Son of Charles Haddon Linnett and Emma S. Linnett, of East Hanningfield. Commemorated on CHATHAM NAVAL MEMORIAL, Kent. Panel 21. See Lyness HMS Vanguard War Memorial.

Note: HMS Vanguard exploded at Fleet Base of Scapa Flow around 11.30 pm on the 9th July 1917, with the total loss of 804 dead, leaving only 2 survivors. A 12 inch gun turret weighing many tons was hurled across the fleet at anchor, to land on Flotta, a mile away, and set fire to the moorland. The loss of the Vanguard is believed to have been caused by an explosion in one of the two munition magazines which served the amidships turrets. Although no formal cause for the cordite explosion was ever found by the Court of Inquiry which was convened into such a major disaster, the most likely explanation is that a fire in a coal bunker or other neighbouring area smouldered away undetected long enough to heat the cordite stored at an adjoining bulkhead to dangerous levels, eventually triggering an explosive reaction. Eyewitness accounts of the incident described seeing a bright flash or flame, followed by two heavy explosions and then a third, smaller one.
