The vessel tagged in this image is the Post Office Cableship Monarch. She was later purchased by Cable and Wireless and renamed Sentinel. Based in Bermuda her role there was to maintain the subsea cables on the west side of the North Atlantic. She was one of the earliest vessels to be fitted with a ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) developed for maintainance of submarine cables.

Hello DeannaG. As you appear to be the single member may I join you? I have spotted a few interesting vessels and will share a few with this group. I have identified two vessels on this site and have noted a couple of images that I will make comments upon.

Hello everyone! I have only recently begun my exploration of the Aerofilms collections and have been amazed by the many fabulous images of vessels 'caught in a moment of time'. Many of the views from the 1920s-1930s catch the last days of sail and the last days of steam... small trading schooners moored alongside steam colliers in Cardiff... pleasure paddlesteamers working from piers such as Llandudno... I have also been intrigued by the views of warships at breakers yards, such as Briton Ferry, in early 1920s. What part did they play in the World War I? I am hoping that fellow minded shipping enthusiasts will join me in helping to unlock their stories.
