Foul anchors of HMS 'Repulse' (1892)' and HMS 'Gibraltar' (1892)'

Photograph depicting the fouled anchors of the battleship HMS 'Repulse' (1892) and the 1st class cruiser HMS 'Gibraltar' (1892). The photographer was off the port bow of HMS 'Repulse' looking back at the anchor. The bottom of the anchor hawse hole can be seen at the top of the image and the outline of the secondary armament embrasure to the right. The anchors are of the 1869 Martin's Patent self-stowing anchor design. A further anchor chain (with anti-kink chain links) can be seen hanging vertically down the starboard bow of Repulse. To the top right of the image, at least eight members of the crew can be seen peering over the port rails at the fouled anchors. The draught marks 'XXX', 'XXIX', and 'XXVIII' can be seen painted on the ship's hull (which show her draught sitting at 28 feet) below the horizontal waterline painted in white. The low angle of the photo just off the port bow suggests that it was taken from water level, most likely from one of Repulse's boats. Hurlstone Jones was appointed Surgeon on the Repulse on 7 September 1898, and the photo was taken at some point in 1899 before he was appointed Surgeon on board HMS 'Pembroke' on 27 January 1900. The original negative envelope stated: 'Foul anchors Repulse Gibraltar. 1899'.
