Boys Swimming, Training Ship Mercury, River Hamble, Hants

Boys from the Training Ship Mercury swimming nude in the River Hamble. The Mercury, established in 1885 by the London philanthropist Charles Hoare, was originally based at Binstead on the Isle of Wight, but moved in 1892 to the River Hamble, near Southampton, where shore-based premises were also provided. Boys aged 12-15 were trained in seamanship, with many going on to join the naval services.
