Hi Everyone

Has anyone out there got a good photograph of HMS Caledonia which was a boys Royal navy training ship ~ I'm looking for a photograph taken when the ship was anchored near to the Forth Bridge

I am doing some research on a sailor who trained on the ship between Nov 1899 ~ Aug 1900

Hope someone can help ~ thank you

Regards...Colin

Hi Stan

Thanks for your quick response ~ it's a good photo !!

There appears to have been numerous ships built through the 19th century with this name ~ can you confirm this the one I'm looking for ~ do you know the location where the photograph was taken

I have read numerous articles one which stated that HMS Caledonia was originally named HMS Impregnable ~do you know if this is correct ???

Just want to be sure I have the correct photo for my research file

Thank You

Regards...colin
