    Thanks for your interest Frank,

    I have a copy of the draught of Conflict from NMM collections which show the modification in red ink. However, my query was really about why it was thought necessary to lengthen a brand new vessel; was her sister, HMS Desperate, similarly modified; and how was it carried out? My efforts over a ten-year period to locate further information and an image of the vessel have been unsuccessful. Conflict was used for a number of trials for various propeller designs and it is this part of her career which led to my questions. Also, why was she selected for these trials?
