Header of Alcide



Alcide was a British Thoroughbred racehorse. It is widely believed that Alcide would have won Epsom's 1958 Derby had not probable foul play prevented him from running. A form line through Nagami, who was third in the Derby, gives credibility to the theory that a fully fit Alcide would have won the race. During this period there was an alarming amount of apparent villainy in racing and it seems likely that the broken rib that Alcide sustained in his stable after he had won the Lingfield Derby Trial was deliberate.

HMS Alcide

"A" Class Submarine "HMS Alcide", 1,120 tons, launched 1945, as rebuilt with a sail conning tower at Devonport Dockyard during the Plymouth Navy Day, 08/61. The "A's" were designed specifically for Pacific operations and were the best submarines Britain produced in WWII. "Alcide" is moored next to the Submarine Depot Ship "HMS Adamant" (12,700 tons, launched 1940). Scanned photograph taken with a simple Brownie 127, hence dubious quality.
