At Sea in the Great War

20 Jul 2021 1:02PM   Views : 255 Unique : 199

WWI was designated The Great War, or even the War to End all Wars. We would beg to differ, but for the historians amongst us, even slight historians like myself, images from these times evoke all sorts of emotions and give us all sorts of information.

I was looking through our family archive and, apart from getting heavily side-tracked by lots of other things, I found an album that I would date from around WWI. The naval images look really interesting, but they were not annotated so I have no idea what ships these are, nor where they were situated. If anybody does know, please let us know. I have also added a few family images from the same time period. Many of the people I do know of because other images elsewhere have been titled. In some cases I knew the people, when they were old and I was very young. I take the family history very seriously and have kept everthing that has come my way, and hopefully it can be kept together in the future.

So for today, some images from the 1910s, some 110 years or so ago.....

In the top pic the auxiliary water tanker is making delivery of fresh drinking water to the bigger ship. In the sea or in the ocean you are surrounded by salty water. Few soap bars (like the Lifebuoy) can wash with salty water (but don't expect much of foam) has said the man who's ship had sunk in Vigo.
