A battleship revealed by the beam of its own searchlight. A big gun emerges in silhouette, as well as a sentry on duty. One feels considerable awe when threading one's way in a small picket boat between the ships of the Fleet at night.

In the foreground the dockyard workers are busily surveying the ship's Gargantuan cables for weakened or damaged links.
