Notes:  JAURÉGUIBERRY was the third ship of the CHARLES MARTEL "class", but was nearly 20' shorter than her predecessors.  And unlike the other two, her deck was not cut down at the stern.  She carried two military masts.  JAURÉGUIBERRY, although in relatively poor condition, served the French Navy in World War I, notably in the campaign at Gallipoli in 1915.  She was stricken in June, 1920, but served as an accommodations hulk until 1932.  JAURÉGUIBERRY was finally broken up in 1934.
