Kent: 1918. An original black and white photograph of H.M.S. Vindictive. Taken the day before she was badly damaged in the Zeebrugge raid. Text in pencil to the border edge stating subject, date and location of the photograph. Notes on the rear of the mount in ink giving details of Vindictive's history. These are almost word for word the Wikepedia entry - so I suspect a recent addition!

The mount is in poor condition. It has a large chip across much of one corner (this does not affect the photograph) and is foxed and dirty. The photograph itself is in much better condition. There is a touch of darkening to the edge, a touch of loss of surface to the sky area, and a couple of small marks. Overall, clean and bright though.
