All,

After some advice from Jim, I managed to sort out the carrier diagrams.

The first is 17 sheets, HMS SEARCHER, not PUNCHER as I first thought.

Working on BATTLER at the minute as one of the pdf pages is corrupted.

I am posting SEARCHER over 3 posts due to the size of the diagrams

Regards,

Craig.

Edit: Although I can't remember where or when I sourced these diagrams, there is an attribution on Page 1.

It would appear that the previously posted general arrangements were indeed HMS PUNCHER and not HMS SEARCHER.

Although page 1 has a pencil amendment on it saying HMS SEARCHER, it also states the carrier as US Pennant CVE-53, which after a bit of hunting, I found out it's true identity;

USS WILLAPA transferred to the RN under the Lend-Lease agreement and renamed HMS PUNCHER.

Next time I will check a bit more thoroughly!

Regards,

Craig.

All,

I managed to sort the corrupted file in the following diagrams.

They are for the ATTACKER Class Escort Carriers, built under the Lend-Lease agreement by Ingalls Shipbuilding Corp., Pascagoula, Mississippi.

Stated on sheet one are the following 4 hulls;

ACV6 - USS ALTAHAMA (later HMS BATTLER - D18)
ACV8 - USS BLOCK ISLAND (later HMS HUNTER - D80)
ACV10 - USS BRETON (later HMS CHASER - D32)
ACV17 - USS ST GEORGE (later HMS PURSUER - D73)

Regards,

Craig

Interesting to read this Craig - Puncher was one of the two WWII RN escort carriers whose ships' companies were RCN personnel, while their aircrews were FAA.

Craig,

many thanks for posting these PDF's.

They will be a valuable tool for anybody considering building a WWII Escort Carrier.

I built a 1:72 scale model of HMS PRETORIA CASTLE, subsequently named SS WARWICK CASTLE, the liner which brought me from South Africa to England in 1948. I was fortunate to see her 1962 in Portland Harbour during a storm, sheltering en route Spain for disposal and breaking up.

Had a quick nostalgic tour.

Sandy.

All,

Thanks for the feedback,

I have a few more to post, but they need tidying up and reducing in size first.

Regards,

All,

The first of two ships general arrangements,

This one - Algerine Class Minesweeper.

I think the other is a Flower Class Corvette, though I'm not sure.

It still needs some fixing, but I'll post it here soon.

Regards,

Craig.

Ok,

I think this is a Flower Class Corvette.

I'm sure someone will correct me if it's not.

Thanks is not enough for this, Craig--I just happen to have an Algerine class minesweeper on my "bucket list", and your post comes along at a near-perfect time! I'll also be starting a River class frigate this winter. You've provided invaluable contributions for us here, and please know that I appreciate it!

Dan,

You're quite welcome.
I believe that this info should be shared and not hoarded in a drawer, or in my case, on a cd somewhere.

Blackbat,

Thank you for your confirmation, I thought it was a Flower, but wasn't sure.

All,

Here's my latest submission.

General Arrangement of the Oberon Class submarines sold to the RCN from the RN.

Regards,

Craig.

Some Current Half Price Offers

 Just seconds from opening fire with a broadside that will devastate her opponent, HMS Victory prepares to pass the stern of the French flagship Bucentaure, closely followed by the three-deckers HMS Temeraire and HMS Neptune. With guns unable to bear on the enemy fleet during the slow approach the British ships had endured terrible punishment with Victorys sails holed, her wheel smashed and her mizzen top shot away.

 A splendid little war was how John Hay, ambassador to Britain, described the Spanish-American war of 1898. Though the war was small in scope it was large in consequences; it promoted the regeneration of the American Navy and the emergence of the United States as a major world power. Fought primarily at sea, the war created an American naval legend in its opening encounter between the pacific squadrons of Spain and the United States at Manila Bay on the 1st of May 1898. At sunrise Admiral Dewey, leading the American fleet in his flagship the USS Olympia, had caught the Spanish fleet, under Admiral Patricio Montojo, by surprise - still anchored off Sangley Point at Manila Bay in the Philippine Islands. Defeat for the Spanish was total and heralded the end of a once extensive Spanish empire in the Americas. Montojos flagship, Reina Cristina, is seen here under fire from the Olympia.

 HMS Norfolk and HMS Belfast of Force I are shown engaging the Scharnhorst which has already been hit and disabled by both HMS Duke of York and the cruiser HMS Jamaica.  Scharnhorst was never to escape the clutches of the British and Norwegian forces for, having been slowed to just a few knots by numerous hits, fell victim to repeated torpedo attacks by the allied cruisers and destroyers that had trapped the German marauder.

 At 0154am, Pilot officer Les Knight in Avro Lancaster AJ-N transmitted the codeword Dinghy, the signal that the Eder Dam had been successfully breached.

 No one will ever know exactly what caused Max Immelmanns demise, but what is known is that his propeller was seen to disintegrate, which caused a series violent oscillations that ripped the Fokker E.III apart, the tail breaking away before the wings folded back, trapping the young German ace in his cockpit. The popular belief is that his interrupter gear malfunctioned, causing him to shoot away part of his own propeller, but British reports attribute Immelmanns loss to the gunnery of Cpl J H Waller from the nose of FE.2b 6346 flown by 2Lt G R McCubbin on Sunday, 18th June 1916. Immelmann was flying the spare E.III 246/16 as his own E.IV had been badly shot up earlier that day.

 Wherever the GIs went they took their Jeeps with them, and before the war was run the little quarter-ton, 4-wheel drive, utility vehicle was as well known around the world as the Model T Ford. Nicolas Trudgian has painted a compelling image, set back in time when the little Jeep was omnipresent on and around the roads and battlefields of a war-torn world. It is Christmas 1944 and, as a gaggle of 339th FG P-51 Mustangs disturb the peace of this ancient English village, a little Jeep waits patiently outside the pub while her occupants sample the local ale. A wonderfully nostalgic painting that will bring back pleasant memories to many.
Welcome Respite by Nicolas Trudgian.
