Admiral Sir Andrew Browne Cunningham,Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean Fleet

This would have been taken around the time of the Battle of Taranto, and I am told that the ship in the background is the carrier HMS Eagle. It appears to be an image used quite widely online, but I'm not sure of the original source, other than the fact that all these images are official war images.

 

Ref: BM 426 (although the image also has NAV 55)
