HMS Fortune from the left

HMS Fortune from the left

Here we see the Acasta class destroyer HMS Fortune from the left, showing her with three funnels of even height, an unusual layout for this class. Even though it has been raised, it is clear that smoke from the middle funnel could still reach the bridge. The Fortune also carried her middle 4in gun in a different position, on the platform that can be seen between the second and third funnels.
