I am using the title of Martin H Brice's book for this thread as it seems to cover what I hope will be an interesting topic. The house clearance man has come up trumps again and has sold me a whole bunch of photographs taken by a sailor from H.M.S. Diamond. Some are captioned, but many are not, some show an event that should be recorded somewhere, but I am not able to find any information about. Others should be dateable as the locations are known. As H.M.S. Diamond transferred to the Mediterranean Fleet in 1939 they must all predate 1939. Having read Martin Brice's book some time ago my memory needs updating, but despite having five distinct entries in the book, there is nothing that relates H.M.S. Diamond to the incidents in the photographs; the book being somewhat of an overview. I will post the photographs in rough order showing some of the more general ones first.
