Potential Literary Reference?
With her huge, droopy single mounted armament, partial belt armour and somewhat lacklustre career, might this ship have inspired Kipling's poem The Ballad of Clampherdown, dressed up in a (slightly satirical) version of the name of her sister the Camperdown? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:32, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
