Summary: A delegation of American politicians arrives on board HMS Queen Elizabeth at anchor in the Firth of Forth, March-May 1918.
Description: Naval officers wait on the ship's quarterdeck for the launch carrying the delegates to arrive. They come up the ladder and are greeted by the naval and liaison officers, wandering about aimlessly and talking with each other.
