Information - H.M.S. CARDIFF was the second ship with this name. A light cruiser of the CERES class, she was launched in April 1917 and commissioned in June, the same year - amazingly quick progress. She then became the flagship of the 6th Light Cruiser Squadron, which was part of the Grand Fleet in July 1917. In 1918, as WW1 ended she was given the honour of leading the German High Seas Fleet to the River Forth for Internment. Between the wars she was the flagship of the Royal Navy's Africa station, and spent her time cruising the coast of Africa calling at various places to 'show the flag'. The ship was sold early 1946, and broken up a couple of months later.
