Do you have a date? The first line has something and then in brackets what looks like Harebell.

Two ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Harebell :

HMS Harebell (1918) an Anchusa-class sloop launched in 1918 and scrapped in 1939
HMS Harebell, a Flower-class corvette ordered in 1940 and cancelled in 1941

A lot of the sites I can see require you to pay for access to records.

This one lists WWI RN ships and might be of some help in deciphering some of the names and the class of boat. It will take some wading through though!

Treetotal(carol) I agree with that!
Manukarik dates were 1 feb 18 to 28 feb 19 on that shop and the last one victory I was 11 dec 20 - 10 may 22
Carol8353 he had 3 miles L of face as his distinctive mark so is that moles or damage on the pic ? I will find his older self and compare   
Josey I saw the excellent on his earlier voyages so will upload that incase more repeats
