A Sailor's Funeral

Another Royal Navy funeral and another mystery to solve. One of the photographs bears the pencilled inscription HMS M - - - - - - - and four accompanying photographs show two warships in a dry dock in a shipyard, together with a warship with the number H01 writ large on its bow and another showing a warship firing ashore. Initial thoughts are that the location of the funeral is perhaps in the Mediteranean. The poorly exposed photo of the warship firing ashore has 16 on its hull.
