These photographs have been taken from two separate
folders. Regrettably, neither is clearly marked on a
consistent basis, but through trial and error we can
ascertain a date to events not marked.
We know, for example, that the Type 22 shore transmitter
was a product of the early 1930's so that is pretty easy to
date. We also know about Court Mourning, ordered by
the Sovereign for special occasions of royal death - Lord
Mountbatten, in 1979, was such a case. Court Mourning
dictates that officers wear black arm-bands for the period
of official mourning. In one of these pictures, there is an
officer so dressed, which makes the likely year to be 1936
at the death of King George V.
