This image is of interest to me as my great uncle Ernest C James (Able Seaman, RN) "drowned while bathing off Cromarty" 05/08/1916 while serving on HMS Achilles. He is buried in Cromarty Cemetary plot L. North-east 16A according to the CWGC website. He had five brothers, two of whom also died serving in WW1 and three sisters, of whom Emily was my Grandmother.
