    Default Warships and Ships at war

    I thought I would give the thread this title because it allows to post both Merchant and Naval ships ,of all nations and ages . I have put the whole page of this story,whgich is taken fromthe July 1940 edition of War Illustrated. In a page you are shown the British version of a page in history,the effects of which live with us still,

    Charles Pears painted many notable wartime scenes and here he is at his best. This is a painting of the hard fought "Pedestal" convoy to Malta.

    Refduelling at Sea, in the British Navy this was carried out by the ships of the Royal Fleet auxilliary,the seamen were all merchant navy and were not on "active service" but did one of the most crucial jobs in battle. Keeping those ship fed and fuelled. This picture is of an American fleet oiler,servicing two ships at the same time. It was ta
    ken by an official photographer; it was in the Pacific and the oiler was the Cohaba,

    Nice one Brian. I always thought the RFA were RN guys. I'm sure they wear RN denims.
