Submarine B6 & HMS Victory in Portsmouth Harbour c1907 by H.T.Sutters

Submarine B6 & HMS Victory in Portsmouth Harbour c1907 by H.T.Sutters
H.T.Sutters is my grandfather, an electrical engineer, who was one of the contractors responsible for installing electrical supplies and infrastructure within Portsmouth Naval Dockyard, in around 1906/7. He also 'electrified' Abbassia barracks in Cairo. He took photos while on both assignments. These are those from Portsmouth.
Submarine B6 served in the first years of WW1, initially in the Royal Navy and later as surface patrol boat with the Italian Navy.

Thanks, Tycho. I hope you don't think I am flooding the group. I have started several railway groups which haven't picked up many contributors, so I am pleased to be able to support a new group.
Best wishes, Phil
