Damaged aircraft carrier (& other vessel)?
« on: 22 May 2020 09:33:13 am »

I would be most grateful if anyone can shed light on the attached photos - the first of which appears to be of a damaged aircraft carrier and the second of another stricken vessel close to shore.

Any insights appreciated!

The carrier is HMS Glorious, photographed after her collision with the French liner Florida on 1 April 1931 off the coast of Spain; she initially went to Malaga and then to Gibraltar for temporary repairs, then to Malta in May for more permanent repair
