Hello everyone, Looking for information on P8044, a Vosper Type II MTB(?). I believe she started out as MTB 531 when ordered but then was designated as CT 44. She was then reassigned as P8044 serving out of St Angelo in Malta.
My Father served on P8044 in the late-'40s in Malta. P8044 and P8045 were featured in the 'Spitfires of the Sea" #5 promotional video for "Senior Service' cigarettes. My father can be seen running onto the Bridge and handing out cigarettes (lol)
My father built a detailed model of P8004 that, after some neglect, I am trying to restore.
I am looking for any information on P8044 activities, where she might have ended up, and details of her deck layout, especially her mast and equipment configuration. (I have a few bits and pieces that I want to identify and correctly locate.)
In addition, I am confused as to her paint colours. When operating out of St Angelo in Malta, what would her deck and topsides paint colours have been?
In advance, Thank you.
