You might want to know that H.M.S. "Nomad" was an Admiralty M-class destroyer. She was launched 7 Feb. 1916, so when sunk at the Battle of Jutland on 31 May 1916, she had only been afloat not quite four months. This explains why photographs of her would be quite rare. However, there are plenty of photographs of her sister ships. The wreck of the "Nomad" was accidentally discovered in 2001, so there are lots of websites which discuss that. There is also an article about her on Wikipedia (no photo there). You can look at images of some of the sister ships by typing (www.worldnavalships.com/moon_class.htm) in your search engine, but without the parentheses. First you will see a list of all the ships in the class, then scrolling down there is a selection of photographs below that. Copies are for sale, but there is none specifically of the "Nomad." Good luck to you.
