Bluejackets going aboard at Invergordon Harbour

What a remarkable scene! One wonders how the boats didn't capsize. The name of the ship at top left is 'Ashdene' registered in Sunderland.
The date of the picture is unknown.

Another source of entertainment for the local folk...we used to watch the sailors returning to their ships after a shore leave, and after visiting the Caley...lots fell into the water rather than onto the boats..always a loud cheer would go up from the other sailors and laughter from the locals...the town was alive with singing when the fleet was in...
