Hello Royce
I've just picked up on your 2002 conversation with Phillip and Graham regarding HMS Hermione and the Boxer Rebellion. After all this time the following may be of no interest to you - but, for what its worth:

My grandfather served as an Able Seaman on HMS Hermione during the Boxer Rebellion and he also received the China Medal (showing Queen Victoria and dated 1900) which has come down to me.

I also inherited a largish oil painting of a British Light Cruiser which I believe to be Hermione as it compares very favourably with the illustration of an Astraea Class Light Cruiser in Janes Fighting Ships of World War I. The artist was an RNR Lieutenant - P.O.Griffiths.

If you have any other information regarding HMS Hermione and/or her activities during this period I would be glad to hear from you.

John
