Cat on a hot Sponson !


Ahoy there, me hearties. (Oh dear, oh dear).

Came across these again today, having a clearout. I bought them a few years ago at a bootfair for a poultry sum.

Thought they might be fun !

Are you sure that you picked these up at a boot fair. I reckon they're your First Commish snaps!
thanks for sharing them

Any thoughts on the name of the ship ?

Orion class Battleship. Probably HMS Conqueror.

The last phot shows HMSubmarine K3. A WW1 era ill fated class build ,using steam turbines as main surface propulsion.
The class killed more ratings than ever the Germans did .

The last 4 hulls were finished as the M class of which only 3 were commissioned, they didn't do too well either as 2 of those were lost with all hands.

Mind you M3 the only one that didn't sink was fitted out as a mine layer and deemed a success
