Argyll was one of the second batch of WW1 "Counties", otherwise known as the Carnarvon class. The Monmouth's had been criticsed for only having 6" guns so some of these were replaced by 7.5" in this follow on class. The other unfortunate member of this class was HMS Hampshire which hit a mine and sank off Orkney when taking Lord Kitchener to Russia in 1916. Carnarvon took part in the Falklands battle and many carried dazzle camouflage schemes later in the war when they were on patrol to enforce the blockade of Germany by intercepting merchantmen - the ultimate irony for a class of cruisers designed for trade protection.
