Coaling warships during the Russo-Japanese War 1904 - 1905

During the Russo-Japanese War (1904 - 1905) both sides used a British invention - Temperley overhead cranes - for coaling their warships while underway. The image from 1905 (coloured by me) shows a Russian navy ship receiving coal from a steamer with a Temperley crane.
