HMS Ghurka from the right

HMS Ghurka from the right

Here we see the Tribal class destroyer HMS Ghurka from the right in 1908, the year after she was launched. In this picture it isn't entirely clear how many guns she is carrying on the forecastle - she was built with two 12-pounders side by side, but most Tribal class ships ended up with a single 4in gun in that position.

This picture has been made public by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums
