“This drawing gives a splendid idea of the hugeness of the task of keeping a warship fighting trim. It represents the food for the officers and the men only. The food for the guns is, of course, another very big item”
Looking at the turret layout, the warships look to be early St Vincent-class or Bellerophon-class dreadnought battleships.
And that is a LOT of prunes…
