Cradock Memorial, York Minster - 2

Details. The Cradock motto: Nec temere nec timide (Neither rashly nor timidly). Certainly not timid. And he and his men had plenty of time beforehand to prepare for meeting a superior German force; so probably not rash either.

Cradock, O'Brien and 1,652 other British sailors died on that All Saints Day in the south-eastern Pacific.
