Admiral Napier, Captain Edwards, and officers of HMS Falmouth with "Kaiser Bill". There are no Midshipmen in this photo, and indeed none were serving on the ship at Jutland. Captain John Hicks, RM, is absent.

Back row left to right
Those in italics were not on Falmouth at Jutland, joining the ship before her sinking in August 1916. This gives a 3 month window for the date of this photograph.

  • GWW was the Admiral's Secretary and maybe is identified by initials alone because this photo belonged to him?

+ The Rev A.B.L. Karney was not on HMS Falmouth at Jutland, but was present as Acting Chaplain of HMS Yarmouth.

Apart from the Carpenter (Warrant Shipwright)and Gunner, identified, the other Warrant Officers are probably John Richard Barnes, Warrant Telegraphist, Harry Hoggett, Chief Gunner, Frederick Lawrence, Warrant Mechanician (now identified by his grandson), Joseph Alfred Saunders, Acting Artificer Engineer, and William Windsor, Gunner (T).
