HMS Valiant in the Cromarty Firth

Here are photographs (see also picture #1383) of HMS Valiant in the Cromarty Firth, taken around 1932 by my late father-in-law Alan Sutherland, then a young civil engineer with Ross and Cromarty County Council. I presume it must have been a day on which the public were invited aboard units of the fleet.

Interesting. The Invergordon Mutiny was only the year before.

That's a really great photo; my Grandfather was a Range Taker (Gunnery) on board her from January 1932 through to 1934 so it's probable he's on board there somewhere!
