A WR&S Reliable Series printed postcard featuring a view of the damaged trawlers of the Gamecock fleet in Hull following an incident in 1904 shen they were fired upon by Russian warships which mistook them for Japanese warships in the North Sea. I think the trawler in the foreground is the Moulmein. Others damaged in the incident were the trawlers Mino, Gull, Snipe and Majestic. Card is in clean condition to the front with very light corner wear and very light album corner marks. Light marking / ageing to the reverse. (VG)
