Three possibilities;

(1) H.M.S. NEW ZEALAND.

Unlikely due to the fact that she was sold in 1922, the cap is the type introduced in the 1930's and the picture was taken in 1940 or 1941.

Why delete it? Some people have gone to a bit of effort to show what to look for in the "Tall Orb" fake. If it is deleted, perhaps attach the useful posts to a relevant thread?

Just a thought.

Hi Herve,
