London Times, 26 October 1909, p. 12: THE RUSSIAN SQUADRON AT PLYMOUTH.
Adm. Magenkovsky, commanding the Russian Training Squadron, now in Plymouth Sound, paid customary calls yesterday. He was accompanied by Capt. Lescoff, of the cruiser DIANA, Capt. Petroff, of the BOGATYR, Capt. Viatkin, of the AURORA, and the Russian Consul at Plymouth, Sir Joseph Bellamy. The Russian visitors also made a call upon the Mayor of Plymouth (Mr. A.E. Spender), who in the afternoon returned the visit. In the evening Adm. Magenkovsky left for London, where he will spend two days. Leave was granted to many of the officers and men of the squadron during the day, and the ships began coaling.
