This is the first post of a series of HMS Rodney from an album I picked up on Ebay a while ago. The album had no text anywhere and only a few images had text on the back. Using Ballantyne’ s Rodney book and simply searching for images of the buildings in the background lead to the city of Algiers that Rodney visited from January 29th to February 6th 1937.

This image was also found in this newspaper confirming the location and date.

Another image of the crew touching up the paintwork was found here
