You're absolutely right - I can't even read the (hand-written) photographer's caption - now corrected

Thanks

TS Revenge, was the name of the Sea Cadet Corp's, stone frigate in Hull. Derringham Street. Had a 25 yard Shooting range. So the targets were scaled down, with old 303's changed down to .22 great fun for us kids from Hessle road. We thought this was really posh.

all the best
