Titania crocodile.jpg

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

In this photo the crew of the H.M.S. Titania stand behind the crocodile whose skin would provide the cover for their ward room mess photo album (see "Titania album" photo.) The note on the back reads "12 foot crocodile shot in Klang River." Perhaps some descendants of the crew members will be able to provide their names.

Titania Album.jpg

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 

This is the Ward Room Mess photograph album of the H.M.S. Titania, that belonged to William Richmond Fell, grandfather of my husband, William Fell, who kindly gives his permission for some of the photos to be uploaded to Gwulo. Unfortunately the album only contains 23 photos taken by WRF, probably all from the same roll of film and not annotated. The photos are not good quality and may not have been immediately developed. It was probably hoped that more crew members would donate their photos.
