 church service being conducted beneath the forward 15-in guns of HMS Queen Elizabeth off the coast of the Gallipoli peninsula during the Battle of Gallipoli, 1915.

Photo from The War Illustrated, 19 June 1915. Caption reads:

An impressive scene aboard H.M.S. Queen Elizabeth in the Dardanelles Straits. In the shadow of the muzzles of her 15 in guns, that can send shells weighing about a ton each a distance of ten miles, a religious service is in progress. In the distance is seen the heights on the Gallipoli Peninsula, where our gallant troops are fighting the Empire's battles against the Turks.
