A little lighter for you Elizabeth.

Not sure about name -  I can see there was a ship called the Royal Arthur, at some stage during the history of the Royal Navy.  It was late 1800 and early 1900s - this bloke looks more modern doesn't he - there was also a shore establishment named Royal Arthur - in Skegness then at Corsham.   (Been doing my homework!    ;))
