Example text

Quoted in Buckley, Washington Conference, p. 72. H. F. Oliver, “Memorandum by the Naval Staff: Admiralty Memorandum for the Cabinet and the CID, United States Proposals for the Reduction of Armaments,” November 21, 1921, 285-B, ADM 116/3445, PRO. Oliver was the Second Sea Lord. For Chatfield’s observations, see December 2, 1921, ADM 116/2149, PRO in ROSK, 7/60, ROSKCC. , 1942), pp. 195–197. 27 Equally objectionable to the Admiralty was Hughes’ assumption that the 10:10:6 capital ship ratio could easily be extended to auxiliary warships – “light” cruisers, destroyers, and submarines – a notion which the Admiralty claimed was “the weakest part of the U.

This assumption, they believed, mandated not only the building of all of the ships in the 1916 naval construction plan, but additional ones, including seven aircraft carriers, and the creation of important modern naval bases along the West Coast of the United States as well as in Hawaii, the Philippines, and Guam. These bases were crucial to enable the fleet to re-supply and to repair ships which would otherwise be required to return thousands of miles back to the United States. 2 The General Board’s assumptions were not politically popular.

Like other British leaders, he was upset over the refusal of the United States to cancel England’s huge war debt, but he prevented his irritation from interfering with his mission of ending the expensive naval arms race and improving Anglo-American relations. 31 Lord Arthur Lee of Fareham, the current First Lord of the Admiralty, was equally anxious for agreement and to improve relations with the United States and, not surprisingly, as the Conference proceeded, his relationship with Beatty became increasingly strained – primarily over the ten-year holiday – a strain which eventually developed into a strong mutual antipathy.
