The Fleet’s Lit up


I am grateful to David Grieg for bringing this classic to my attention.

in 1937, after generous liquid refreshment in the Officers’ Mess of HMS Nelson, Lt.-Commander Woodrooffe attempted to describe the spectacle of the Illuminated fleet at the Royal Review, Spithead. The accompanying pictures were taken at Portland, also the scene of reviews of the great inter-war Royal Navy.

Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
