Memorial card. Printed on cream card with black boarder.
The Dogger Bank incident (also known as the North Sea Incident, the Russian Outrage or the Incident of Hull) occurred on the night of 21/22 October 1904, when the Russian Baltic Fleet mistook a British trawler fleet from Kingston upon Hull in the Dogger Bank area of the North Sea for an Imperial Japanese Navy force and fired on them. Russian warships also fired on each other in the chaos of the melée. Three British fishermen died and a number were wounded. One sailor and a priest aboard a Russian cruiser caught in the crossfire were also killed. The incident almost led to war between Britain and Russia
"In disgraceful memory of the Russian Navy (or what's left of them) The world's stumbling block to civilization, the 20th cenury savages who started on their road to destruction on October 23rd, 1904. In their brilliant naval battle, when they completely routed unarmed fishing smacks in British waters."
"Gone, but not forgotten."
"Russia expects that every bear this day will do his duty."
