HMS MEDWAY at Shanghai 1936
From Barrie DownerHMS MEDWAY Ship's Company at Shanghai in April 1936 during the 1934 to 1937 Commission of the Barrow-built Submarine Depot Ship. The Captain SM4 at that time was Captain Cyril G B Coltart. The photo was with an album kept by an Able Seaman Samuel Webb of HMS MEDWAY which also included photos of Hong Kong, Singapore, Wei-Hai-Wei, Shanghai, Peking, Manila and Japan - places so familiar to Submariners of a previous era. The Photo and the Album are part of the Submarine Heritage Collection in the Local History section of the Barrow Central Library.
