I recall that the Cockchafer was mentioned in the novel "The Sand Pebbles" as one of the gunboats standing by with the fictional gunboat San Pablo? Or, am I losing my mind?
Never heard of one, but if there was, I’d snap one up in an instant. It would have to be done as HMS Cockchafer. Surely the accidentally rudest name for a Royal Navy ship ever!!
