Dead Dolphin ashore May 2016

A small piece of local Royal Naval History


Came across this photograph in the Mick Twyman archives. It is Rear Admiral W A H  Kelly and senior officers coming ashore at Margate on the 30th June 1923 to attend a reception with the Mayor of Margate William Leach Lewis. Anchored off the pier is battleships HMS Ramilles and HMS Revenge and a smaller ship HMS Margaret on a post war visit. The man in the top hat is the Margate Town sergeant.
