Really nice piece of dialog but there is a slight error in it as the ship nearest the camera is Royal Sovereign, not Revenge.

Revenge had her main armanment removed at Portsmouth in 1943/44 as spares for the Queen Elizabeths. This clearly has all its armament.

Royal Sorevriegn had been on loan to Russia but was in extremely poor condition , its turrets siezes fore/aft as shown in this picture.
