Charles Lemon

Shipwright 4th Class CH/M/23950, Royal Navy. HMS Theseus. Died 05/01/1919. Born in, and resident of Waldringfield. Commemorated on the Baku Memorial, Azerbaijan.

HMS Theseus, first-class cruiser of the Edgar Class. Launched in 1892, HMS Theseus saw service as tender to HMS Cambridge from 1905 to 1913 and then joined the Queenstown Training Squadron in February 1913. Theseus joined the 10th Cruiser Squadron during 1914-1915 after which she was rearmed and bulges added for Dardanelles service. She returned from service in the Mediterranean in 1916 and was sent to the White Sea. In 1918 she was stationed as a depot ship in the Aegean and later in 1919 in the Black Sea, returning home in 1920. She was sold and scrapped in 1921. The Baku memorial, erected in 2004, commemorates those 47 soldiers -- out of a total of 92 who were killed in the Azerbaijani capital in 1918 and 1919 -- who have been identified by name. Originally occupied briefly by British forces in 1918, Turkish troops in turn evacuated Baku in November 1918 and were replaced by a new Commonwealth contingent that remained there until the Bolshevik advance made it impossible to stay. The 92 British soldiers were initially buried in Bakuís Christian cemetery, but this cemetery was destroyed under the Soviet regime that took over from the short-lived Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan in the early 1920s
