§ 18. Major Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the Atlantic Fleet flagship, His Majesty's Ship "Revenge," has completely refitted at Portsmouth and leaves that port on Thursday for Rosyth to be docked; and if he can say why this ship could not be docked at Portsmouth, the headquarters of the Fleet, instead of being sent to Rosyth?
The "Revenge" is not being clocked at Portsmouth, as the only graving clock which will take this ship is required for other services. The vessel could not be docked in the floating dock at Portsmouth, owing to certain work being necessary which can only be carried out in a graving dock
