HMS Retribution, January, 1896

The Signal Staff of HMS Retribution

Signal staff of the cruiser Retribution, the senior officer's ship of the squadron serving off the south east coast of America. The signal service in the Royal Navy in 1896 was recruited directly from the training ships, where boys likely to prove suitable, were in the first place set aside for special training. On being drafted at the end of the training ship course to sea-going ships, the boys were rated as "signal boys" and instead of rising to become AB's, continued in the signals department throughout their term of service, becoming qualified signalmen, yeoman of signals, etc. right up to chief yeoman of signals.
