A photograph of HMS Beagle's sister ship

A flourish-bedecked hat-tip and a deep, grateful bow to Richard Cater over at The Red Notebook for discovering, capturing and posting this rare gem of a photograph one of HMS Beagle's sister ships, the HMS Kangaroo. Richard grabbed the photo from a VHS recording of an old documentary.  Check out the two people standing on the deck.  This should give you a sense of scale to keep in your mind's eye when you dream of the new Beagle ...c'mon, I know I'm not the only one.
