British Royal Navy stationing more destroyers in the Humber entrance according to the Dutch magazine Marineblad dated 1913-1914 no. 6

An item reported that just like at Invergordon, Dundee, Rpsyth and Harwich also in the Humber entrance 20 destroyers of the newest 935 tons type and a speed of 31 miles were to be stationed. The reason was probably the recent purchasing of a large area near Grimsby for placing oil tanks.
