The MTB 670 picture.
The original painting of MTB 670 was commissioned by my mother for her husband Ken Fisher in 1980. When Ken Fisher died in 2005, the picture passed to his grandson, an Army officer, who takes great delight in the surprise of visitors to his office, at the sight of an MTB on his office wall. As a result, we are trying to put together a narrative of MTB 670; where she went and what she did, starting from what bits Ken told us!
We have crew pictures, some of which are already on this site. Ken was part of the initial crew which collected MTB 670, brand new from Brightlingsea in April 1943. He remained on board until he returned to UK on the Athlone Castle in August 1945. Sadly, his last view of MTB 670 was to see her beached, awaiting her future.
I have a letter from Mr Peter Bickmore, the CFVA Secretary for Essex, about how he had used up all his photographs of the original painting. In one of the posts above, you have the newspaper cutting about the presentation of one of the photographs to the president of RNA Malta.
