Vol. 19 No. 8, August 2023

I'm not sure if this counts as an obscure chaser photo, so maybe I'm not sticking to the recent theme. But I thought this dry dock shot with a ladder up to the bow was interesting. This is SC 125 in dry dock at Malta in January, 1919. The chasers that had been stationed at Corfu were at this time starting the long journey home, and many would spend a couple of weeks in Malta waiting for time in the dry dock. Image from the collection of Henry "Harry" Tegler, who served on SC 125 as a radio man.
