Aquitania is seen docked at the Armstrong Whitworth shipyard on the Tyne in August, 1920, undergoing restoration, and conversion to oil fuel. The British Submarine M3, which was built at Armstrong’s yard between July, 1916, and March, 1920, is seen in the foreground, returning from her deep sea trials. The M3 had a Type 41 12-inch (305 mm)/40 caliber naval gun mounted as her primary deck gun. It’s the largest caliber deck gun I’ve ever seen mounted on a submarine. Although commissioned in July 1921, she didn’t join the 1st Submarine Flotilla until February, 1922. Onlookers on the deck of the M3 watch a crew of paint chippers and scrapers as they remove layers of peacetime, and wartime paint, from Aquitania’s hull. The porthole style covers on the original lower bridge of the ship will eventually be removed during this overhaul, and they wouldn’t be replaced until December, 1920. They then became permanent, except for a brief, one month timeframe, when they were removed, in September of 1945.
