THE DOCKYARD, The plans and drawings of the new mother" ship, or as she is now termed "parent" ship, have now been received in Pembroke Dock. The Dock is being cut away to lengthen it some few feet so it is anticipat- ed that the ship will be absolutely completed in Pembroke Dockyard. She will be chris- tened the "Boadicea." The old Boadicea, which has lately been .withdrawn for the active service list, was an unprotected second-class cruiser, launched at Portsmouth in 1875. The Warrior has now returned from her steam trials in which she satisfactorily acquitted her- self, and is lying off Carr Jetty. She will pro- bably be completed early in May. The launch of the Defence will probably take place on April 27th, but the date is not yet decided upon definitely. She will be the 115th ship launched in Pembroke Dockyard. Since 1895 the following vessels have been launched at Pembroke Dockyard :—Renown, Hannibal, Andromeda, Spartiate, the Royal Yacht, Dolp- hin, Grampus, Drake, Essex, Cornwall, Duke of Edinburgh and Wairrior. Mr. John Ward, M.P., for Stoke-on-Trent paid a Tlsit to the yard on Friday. P.S. Burland, of the Metropolitan Police, stationed at Pembroke Dockyard, has been transferred to Devonport. Mr. John Perkins, foreman of the joiners, retires on pension on March 11th, after being granted 12 months extension" of service. Mr. Perkins came from Devonport to Pembroke as foreman in 1893, when he succeeded Sir. Aagroin. The post of foreman will not be filled up, but allowed to lapse, the work boing done by inspectors.
