post-92211-0-84891300-1349127509_thumb.jPercy Hall was my late Father-in-law born 13-1-1900. He served on the Manxman from May 20th 1918 until the end of the war. The Manxman was an Isle of Man Ferry converted into an aircraft carrier. It served in the eastern Mediterranean and was; I believe equipped with Sopworth Strutters but I may be wrong. The attached photo has always intrigued me.What does it represent ?Apart from young Percy they all appear quite experienced men and then there's the mix of uniforms.. Good conduct badges or sergeants stripes.? Are the officer and the midshipman the crew of an aircraft and was this the support team.The officer is wearing the ribbon of the Military Cross so a celebratory photo or perhaps celebrating the end of the war. Your views and opinions would be gratefully received.regards Jeff Ward.
