Royal Navy Ship names
« on: Monday 18 February 19 18:05 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to decipher a Royal Navy Service Record but unfortunately some of the ships are very hard to read. I was wondering if anyone recognises any of the ships in this image?
Thanks in advance.

Think the third is "Formidable". Sorry, no idea of the others,

On a second look, might the second be "Pembroke"?

Thank you very much, I can see Formidable now! He returned to Pembroke several times, I'm guessing this was his base? So it could well be Pembroke.
