Do you have a scanner? If so scanning them and putting them on a public website will ensure that the images are not forgotten. The key is coming up with a good description so that search engines can find them. You can still give them to a suitable society. A local museum may be able to scan them for you.

Wikipedia has an almost full list of RN ships. An expert on adding to Wiki should be able to add some of the scanned images to the ship's page. Also the BBC have websites dedicated to receiving viewers memories of the World Wars.
