The Royal Navy in the Cromarty Firth

The date of this tinted postcard is unknown but it has a caption on the back: 'This is where the dear old Commonwealth was lying'. HMS Commonwealth is almost certainly the battleship on the right. She started service with the Navy with the Atlantic fleet in 1906. It is quite likely that she visited Invergordon before or during the First World War, but it is known that between 1919 and 1921 she served as a sea-going Gunnery Training ship at Invergordon.
