These are the officers of the British naval warship H.M.S. Audacious (built in 1869). The photo was taken just after the ship’s arrival at Nagasaki port. As a fellow British citizen, Potter appears to have made a courtesy call to Admiral Hillyar, Captain Durrant, Commander Carr and Mr. Phillips. The ship was turned into a training ship in 1902. Later, the ship had its name changed and was finally decommissioned in 1927.
