Added some photos today of the 1889 Fleet Review at Spithead. The whole set is on this page : http://www.battleships-cruisers.co.uk/fleet_reviews.htm but the photos are also on each of the ships' pages on the site. Would like to know if anyone knows any of the ships in the backgrounds?

KC behind the Camperdown are HMS Anson and HMS Benbow, of the same class [Admirals] - but I cannot ascertain which way around. I believe them to be the other ships as I have seen a postcard with all 3 in it before and know them to have been at the 1889 Review...
When I get some more time I will look more deeply into the others.
