Route through the Mediterranean of the HMS Ramillies

Route through the Mediterranean of the HMS Ramillies, ordered at full speed to travel to Jaffa on 24th October 1929 to respond to the crisis situation in the Middle East. The 1929 Arab riots in Palestine, or the Buraq Uprising (also known as the 1929 Massacres), was a series of demonstrations and riots in late August 1929 when a long-running dispute between Muslims and Jews over access to the Western Wall in Jerusalem escalated into violence. The riots took the form, in the most part, of attacks by Arabs on Jews accompanied by destruction of Jewish property. During the week of riots from 23rd to 29th August, 133 Jews were killed and between 198–241 others were injured, a large majority of whom were unarmed and were murdered in their homes by Arabs, while at least 116 Arabs were killed and at least 232 were injured, mostly by the British police while trying to suppress the riots, although around 20 were killed by Jewish attacks or indiscriminate British gunfire. During the riots, 17 Jewish communities were evacuated. The Ramillies was sent out to support the British presence in the region.
