HMS Porpoise run aground from the rear

HMS Porpoise run aground from the rear

Here we see a rear view of the Acasta class destroyer HMS Porpoise after she ran aground, at some point during 1918 when she had the pennant number H.95. This is an unusual angle to see one of these ships, and shows how rounded her stern was, with enough of a flat space to paint the penannt number clearly.
