Ceres Class (1917) CC

The five ships of the Ceres Class (1917) were light cruisers. Ordered Mar/Apr-1916 as repeats of the previous Caledon Class (1917).  However, despite being intended as repeats enough design changes were made to make then a separate and fifth sub-group of C Class cruisers.

As a result of the London Naval Treaty of 1930, a number of cruisers had to be disposed of.  So all C Class cruisers were earmarked for conversion to Anti-aircraft cruisers, but only Coventry, Curacoa and Curlew were actually converted.

Three were lost during WW2 and the two survivors were scrapped shortly after the war ended.
