Wow, thanks for all your help, I'll have to sift through all you have sugested. I would imagine from some posts that this is WW1, and would seem to be land based HMS VIVID, but I don't know yet what this means. Was it a stepping stone to somewhere else, a reserve base, did people from here actually go to war. Maybe some of the other sites you have sugested will explain this, bit thanks so much to all for everything so far.

I think it would be correct to say that there was a Signals School at HMS VIVID, but there were plenty more organisations within.

A training base as far as I can see. I have looked before because my grandfathers brother was there. He was not a signaller. He went from there to a seagoing vessel. Is there no indication of when the photo was taken, the clothing certainly seems to be early, but you can see  the similarities of dress in this photo, taken in the 1930s [the person on the left in the photo was born 1909]
