Royal Navy WWI Photos at NHHC
« on: April 06, 2017, 01:10:04 am »
Here is a photograph of the Battle of Jutland I found on the Museum of the US Navy Flickr. There are quite a few RN photos to be found here and on the NHHC website.

Salvo of 12? shells falling between the Royal Navy battle cruisers HMS Lion and HMS Princess Royal and the destroyer line.

Now sometime back (but not so long) there was a mention of semaphor signals that sounded like it did not include flags. Just can't recall where I heard it. Anyway...here's a picture of semaphor involving a loud haler from that last set of pictures. Great pictures Kevin!. Curious:
