These are collections of photographs that have been submitted by relatives of former crew members. The main pages for the 1935 cruiser would be too cluttered if I tried to show all these photos there, yet it would be a travesty not to share these photographs so this seemed the best way to display them. Please note that the gallery pages appear here in the order that they were received by me.
As usual, if you have any photographs that you would like to include please contact me, if you are unable to send them electronically email me and I will give you my mailing address.
The Lawrance collection, this collection I feel is outstanding for the sheer quality of the photographs as well as showing hitherto unseen details of Arethusa's superstructure. This page may take a while to load but is worth the wait. February 2004.
The Fearne collection, not as many photographs but I think you'll agree that these offer a valuable insight to Navy life, again these are excellent quality photographs. February 2004.
The Oliver collection, contains some unique photos that show the human side of serving in the Royal Navy during the war. August 2004.
The Mason collection, again contains some interesting photos. November 2004.
The Moore collection, contains a passing out parade photo at Chatham and some group photos of shipmates, some very touching photos. November 2004.
The Ashman collection, contains some nice pre-war photos of the visit of some locals to Arethusa while she enjoyed a spot of leave on the French Riviera. December 2004.
The Hewitt collection, contains hitherto unseen pics of some crew while Arethusa was at Charleston for repairs as well as a photo of a model of Arethusa built by stoker Jack Hewitt. April 2005.
The Glassberg collection, contains 10 new photographs plus some unique first hand accounts from Len who served from mid 1941 to Feb 1943 aboard Arethusa. January 2006.
