HMS Warspite Luncheon

What we know about this image :

Difficult to read the incription on the reverse but it possibly says HMS Waspite Luncheon and the date is 1933. The ship apparently earned the most battle honours of any Royal Navy ship serving in both First and Second World Wars before being scrapped in 1950.

It is assumed that perhaps in 1933, the ship docked in Hartlepool and it appears that there was some type of civic reception in the Borough Hall.
