Somebody sent me a file with these pics inside in BMP format, I have converted them into jpeg for this post but if anybody would like them in bmp then say so and I will try and arrange that.

Nice pictures, like the Lion and the "Dotter", revealing details. Thanks. Ted

Wow, very nice variety of pictures. And now I know how they practiced continuous aim with the secondary battery at least.

I for one would be very interested in the bitmaps Ted B. Email me at simonharley@gmail.com if you would.

Does anyone know whether the floating docks were acutlaly given names, designations? For example in the USN a similar vessel would be YFD-x. Or would it be just as described in the caption above; "HM Medway Floating Dock?

Cheers,

The design and use of dotters and their progeny is fairly well recorded. They generally used an irregularly-shaped came to drive the card's motion.

Eventually, there were even shore-based director trainers which would pitch and yaw chaotically, and even buck when the guns were fired due to the action of a device called the "kicker".

Naval training can make a fair claim to being the birthplace of simulation.

edit: the gun with the dotter is not familiar. I find the shield and its distinctive slots for the scopes (and removable slot cover "basket") unusual.

I find the layer's parking of his cap amusing!

I have stuck the bmp files up on my webspace for download now, there are some other pictures which I did not include in the original post but they may prove of interest. Some early naval aviation shots and a few submarines.

Anybody interested in the passenger liners of the period ?

Bell, I put at least a few of what I think were these images here and will look further if you are interested.

Can you tell us a little about your naval interest? I worried that your registration and signature seem a little spammy. This post makes you at least look like a hard-working spammer. Which we really appreciate! :)
