HMS Yarmouth of the Weymouth class


These cruisers were improved and enlarged versions of the preceding Bristol class, with heavier armament and several other improvements. They are also the first cruisers to be equipped with a plane, in most cases a Sopwith Pup, which can take off from the cruiser but must reach land to touch down.
