A few weeks ago I was writing about the transfer of naval ratings from the hulks to the modern Victory Barracks (now HMS Nelson).

This photo was sent in by Eric Rice of Waterlooville and shows sailors marching from the ships in 1898, a few years before the transfer.

These magnificent ships are standing high in the water as all their gunnery has been removed.
