HMAS Yarra in Dry Dock


HMAS Yarra in Dry Dock

Here we see the Australian River class destroyer HMS Yarra in a rather unusual high level drydock in Livorno, Italy, in October 1918. This unusual picture gives us a very good view of her rudder and propellers, although one does rather wonder how she got up there!

This picture comes from the collection of the Australian War Memorial, and is in the public domain.
