Bows of a Powerful Class Cruiser

Bows of a Powerful Class Cruiser

This picture of the bows of a Powerful class cruiser gives a good idea of the size of the ships - note the size of the figures on the high bow and the tiny boat at the bottom right! We also see the two-storey barbettes used to carry the 6in guns.

Many thanks to Paul Horton for providing us with this picture.
