The breech of after port side four-inch gun on HMS 'Aurora (1913) while in drydock.

A close-up of the breech of the after port side four-inch gun, without its shield, on the light cruiser HMS 'Aurora' (1913) while in dry dock during her commissioning period. The breech is open with the loading tray out and one of the ship's cats is sitting in it. The photographer was standing just behind and to the left of the breech looking forward along the port side of the ship. In the background are the torpedo hoist and torpedo embarking davit.

This is a poor quality negative.
