A very nice group. We were discussing the double relief combination recently on the forum and it is a very nice combination to see.

Fantastic group Raldal.

In case you're not aware I can tell you that Gulliver served in Lieutenant Richards' 12 pounder unit (two guns) in South Africa and with HMS Terrible's Royal Marine Detachment in China.

There's a nice article about Percy Scott, HMS Terrible, and the Naval Guns here

The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.

What a lovely group that is, David, really not a naval type, yet I do feel drawn to this particular ship, perhaps it's about time I put my hand in my pocket?
