Chasers at Malta

Dry dock, Malta

Added to the set photos taken at Malta are two shots of chasers, submitted by Richard Gibbons, whose grandfather served in the RNAS, working on aircraft manufacture.

One shows eleven chasers (at least) in dry dock at the same time, in several rows of three, and a couple at the near end. The chasers were brought into dry dock frequently, to seal seams, sheath the hull, and perform repairs. This photo was probably taken just after the war, as the chasers were readying for the return trip overseas.
