Reading the interesting article on Hodgetts, what was the "battle of the rivers'? was that the Aisne where he was fatally wounded?

Ah, but it's not an exact replica of the first, so the religious extremists won't recognize it when they see it!

Hi Daniel

I disagree
I think it would be a major tourist attraction and lots of people would want to go on it.
But it would not be exactly the same, I would presume the hull under water would have to be double skinned and I dont think they would put triple expansion coal fired steam engines in it, they would probably be diesel electrics?! But in China , who knows!!
