HMS Acasta from the right

Here we see HMS Acasta, name ship of the Acasta Class destroyers, probably in the Solent, with one of the Palmerston forts in the left background. The Acastas were armed with three 4in guns, and the middle gun can just be made out between the rear funnel and the small rear superstructure. This picture must date to 1918, when the Acasta carried the pennant number H.00.
