I can imagine the sinking feeling as you joined Nelson as a young sailor and on checking the watch and station bill, you discover that your part of ship is the Focsle! 3/4 of the whole bloody ship!

Beautiful photo of her, thanks.

I suggest HMS Repulse or HMS Renown in the distance over her port bow, maybe a QE Class possibly HMS Barham in the far centre distance.

Regards

Yes Tom as a bunting with Special Sea duty on the Jackstaff or with the cable flags for anchoring. Cut lunch required to get there.

Remember my time aboard the VANGUARD in Reserve , our mess was around the bows section and the toilets were around about the mid ship area so by the time you managed the ladders and hatches to get to the toilets you were lucky if you did`nt need a clean set of under pants when you got back to the mess.
