The photo alleged to be of HMS Stonghold (an Admiralty S class destroyer) is almost certainly not of her - the photo is of an Admiralty R or possbily an M.  The pennant number (H50) was certainly used by Stronghold from about 1920 on; but pennants were changed frequently before that.   It seems H50 was applied to HMS Obdurate, a Repeat Admiralty M class, late in WW1 - that may well be who the "Stronghold" photo is actually of. My records suggest that H50 was applied to Stronghold on commissioning (ie in early 1919); as Obdurate was broken up in 1921 she presumably surrendered the H50 pennant at one of the general pennant number changes (around Sep/Nov 1918, then again in Sep/Nov 1919); although if she was a minelayer, they changed numbers more frequently than other ships - see for example Valhalla, 5 changes between Jan 1918 and Nov 1919)    ---   Information from Steve Pearson.
