Main picture

We know that this is a peacetime shot, because the men have the name 'HMS Repulse' on their caps, during wartime it would have been replaced by just 'HMS'. (at least this is the case on HMS Repulse). Some other ships, like HMS Revenge for example, had crew wearing the 'HMS Revenge' Tally on their caps even during wartime.
