About these photographs

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.
