H.4) HMS Victory and 'Terry'

During a visit to HMS Victory in 2010 I took the following picture in the Ward Room:

The waxwork figure at the right added scale, but did not seem to be in contemporary dress. My daughter and I discussed how unrealistic it was.

Imagine my surprise when twenty minutes later I saw this 'waxwork' walking about the upper gun deck.

Imagine the surprise of the Chief Petty Officer to whom I jokingly showed the photograph and congratulated on having a team with a good sense of humour.

"That's Terry. I need to have a word with him".
