SHE WAS SUNK AS A TARGET OFF DEVON IN 1913. Also a steam yacht moored along side.
STANDARD SIZE SLIDE SMALL LOSS OF TAPE MISSING FROM ONE EDGE. Condition VERY GOOD. A rare view of an early battleship, linking the past with sailing ship masts and the iron-clad hulls. Out of date for the WW1 and was then used as target practice and sunk by her own side. No wonder there are no museum ships of this class around today.
