HMS Agincourt (British Battleship, 1914)
Steaming in heavy seas, circa 1918.
This is a composite photograph. The aircraft in the foreground
appears to be an Armstrong Whitworth Atlas, a type that did not
see service until the later 1920s.
The original letterpress print, entitled "War", was
published circa the 1930s. It credits the photograph to Captain
Alfred G. Buckham, "the ace of aerial photography".
