For those with an interest in galley warfare, or the Ottoman empire, this may be useful.
At the. End of the article, there is a list of the ships involved in Matapan.
It gives the Ottoman ships names in both Turkish and english.  This information been has hard to come by for me.

Ottoman ship names are weird.

But probably not to an Ottoman, obviously  ;D

Well, once when Napoleon was reviewing the troops, he turned to Talleyrand, "Isn't my army the greatest in the world?"
"Sire, you can do anything with bayonets, but sit on them."
I'm sure an Ottoman would agree.
