Hi,

For some time now, I have been trying like mad to get a photo of Tally Ho! on which I did my sea training on out of Blockhouse/Dolphine, and just can't find one with the fin. Plenty of the WW2 version, I even have one when she was laid up in Birkenhead after the war, never realising I would serve on her. My time was not long as I passed out when we did a deep dive and was reverted back to gens. Hope you can help.

Hi Ken,

Tally-Ho was never converted, therefore no fin!! Hope this helps.
