Six men in evening dress and a man seated on a prop in drag. A concert party on the ill-fated battleship HMS Royal Oak, circa 1918-20 (the ship was sunk after being torpedoed in Scapa Flow in October 1939, with 833 men lost). The 'drag' performer is in a badly improvised costume and wig, while the members of the formally-attired male chorus are all smoking cheroots

Part of James Gardiner Collection: photographs of military, naval, and prisoner-of-war camp drag.
