HMS Garland from the right

HMS Garland from the right

Here we see the Acasta class destroyer HMS Garland from the right, with the 'K' for K class suggesting that the picture was taken at some point in 1913-14, after the Acastas became the K class, but before they got pennant numbers in 1914. From this angle we also get a good view of the fairly small shields for her 4in guns, which can't have offered much protection to the gun crews!
