Royal Navy : HMS Prince of Wales.
Photo taken during a church service on board HMS Prince of Wales, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland, in August, 1941, during the Atlantic Charter Conference. A better resolution version of the same scene (slightly different photo) on the Naval History and Heritage Command website reveals that among those seated in the centre are Winston Churchill and U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
