USS Milwaukee (C-21) is beached as a result of an attempt to rescue stranded submarine USS H-3. Samoa, CA, 13 January 1917.

Under the temporary command of Lieutenant William F. Newton acting as Coast Torpedo Force Commander, Milwaukee sailed on 5 January 1917 for Eureka, California, to assist in salvaging the U.S. Navy submarine H-3 which had run aground off Humboldt Bay on 14 December 1916. On 13 January, while attempting to float the submarine and disregarding the recommendations of local mariners, the cruiser stranded in the first line of breakers at Samoa, California, off Eureka. Four hundred twenty-one enlisted and 17 officers were rescued safely by the Humboldt Bay Life-Saving Station and local volunteers but attempts to salvage the ship were unsuccessful. H-3 was ultimately salvaged and returned to service

Milwaukee was decommissioned on 6 March 1917 and a storm in November 1918 broke the ship in two. Her name was struck from the Naval Vessel Register 23 June 1919 and her hulk was sold on 5 August 1919.
HMS M1 visited Anvers in 1925 in company with HM submarines H31, H48 and H43

The M series of British submarines included four boats completed between 1917 to 1918. Each carried a single 12 inch gun that could elevate but the submarine had to turn to change the direction of fire. In company with HM submarines H31, H48 and H43, M1 visited Anvers in 1925. In November of the same year, M1 was rammed by SS Vidar and sank with all hands. The wreck was located in 1999 and this is possibly the last photograph of M1.

Due to heavy losses early in the war, the Admiralty decided in June 1940 to stop naming submarines in anticipation for greater losses as the war when on. Instead the ships were to be known by their pennant number.

Near the end of 1942 this decision was reversed and the surviving ships finally started receiving names, P51 & P43 being named Unseen & Unison respectively in 1943. Both survived the war

During the action, Saumarez suffered a 200 mm hit to her funnel (pictured), some light damage to her forecastle from another 200 mm shell and a severed steam pipe from a 5" shell. She was the only British vessel damaged in the engagement.

in return, the Japanese would lose the heavy cruiser Haguro and the destroyer Kamikaze would suffer some light damage.
