Gay class FPB's

Postby Pioneer » Thu Sep 03, 2020 3:12 pm

A rarely seen image has surfaced of the Bridge of HMS Gay Carabineer The image was sent by Mike Harrison from New Zealand who is currently building a large scale model of HMS Brave Swordsman - see here > viewtopic.php?f=14&t=633 <
Prominent in the image is the Port side Rocket Flare Launcher; this has been a valuable source of information for Mike in his painstaking quest for accuracy with his model.

Further information may possibly be gathered from the image:
4 Commissioned Officers on the Bridge would suggest that the craft was on a training exercise and that at least 2 other craft were accompanying her (the wake on the St'bd side, plus the photographers craft).
