Default WWI photos found.

I found a number of photos my Wife's Great Grandfather, Samuel Martindale, took on his way to the trenches in France with the 14th Battalion of the C.E.F. 3 of them were interesting shot of British naval ships in Plymouth Harbour (or was it actually called Devonport Harbour??).

Regardless, I have had some luck identifying, or at the very least narrowing it down but would really love to firm up those ships in the photos taken, if at all possible. I've posted the question and photos in the following thread ...

This looks like the place to go. Besides, some of his pictures would be of some interest to folks on here as well, and I'd like to share them where I can so that we all don't forget.
