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)

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

Captain Charles Vane was born in 1680, and was an English pirate who preyed upon English and French shipping.  Vane began piracy in 1716 and lasted 3 years. Vane captured a Barbados sloop and then a large 12-gun brigantine, which he renamed the Ranger.   Vane was among the pirate captains who operated out of the Bohama at the notorious base at New Providence after the colony had been abandoned by the British.  His pirate attacks made Captain Charles Vane well known to the Royal Navy and in February of 1718 Vincent Pearse, commander of HMS Phoenix cornered Vane on his ship the Lark.  Vane  had heard of the recent royal pardons that had been offered to pirates in exchange for a guarantee they would quit plundering, so Vane claimed he had actually been en route to surrender to Pearse and accepted the pardon on the spot,  Charle Vane gained his freedom but as soon as he was free of Pearse he ignored the pardon and resumed his pirate ways.  Charles Vane was again captured and in 1721 was executed by hanging at Gallows Point, Port Royal, Jamaica on March 29th 1721.

 The Sopwith Dolphin was a radical departure from previous Sopwith design philosophies, embodying a reverse-stagger on the wings, a water-cooled Hispano-Suiza engine and an unusual, but highly popular positioning of the cockpit which gave the pilot unprecedented views. One exponent of this purposeful looking machine was Canadian Major A D Carter who claimed many of his 31 victories flying the Dolphin. He is shown here sending an Albatross to the ground on 8th May 1918 whilst flying C4017. Carter was himself shot down soon after became a prisoner of war. He was killed in 1919 whilst test flying a Fokker D.VII at Shoreham, Sussex.

 As 1944 drew to a close, Hitler made his final gamble of the war, mounting a massive strike force aimed at splitting the Allies forces advancing upon Germany. His armour, supported from the air, would rip through the Ardennes to Antwerp, capture the Allied fuel supplies, and cut off all the opposing forces to the north. Hitlers commanders were dubious of the outcome but nevertheless obeyed orders, and the operation was launched on 16th December. Allied intelligence had discounted any German counter-offensive and the initial wave, comprising 8 Panzer divisions, took the Allied forces completely by surprise. A parachute drop of English-speaking German soldiers in American uniforms behind the assault zone added to the confusion. Advancing some 30 miles, and almost in sight of the River Meuse, by 26th December the SS Panzers had ground to a halt with empty fuel tanks, and were at the mercy of Allied counter-attacks. By 16th January the German penetration was repulsed and Hitlers beloved Panzer units retreated in tatters. The Fuhrers last gamble had failed. Fw190s of JG1 provide close support to the 9th SS Panzer Division, as they spearhead Germanys final major offensive of World War II. Seen advancing on the 82nd Airborne Division, the King Tiger tanks, with the aid of Luftwaffe ground-attack fighters, drive the Americans back through the snowy fields of the Ardennes on Christmas Day, 1944. It was the last, short-lived and ultimately unsuccessful advance made by the German forces during World War II. <br><br><b>Published 2001.</b>

Half Price! - £135.00
The Allied breakthrough into the Normandy plain, against heavy German opposition. Filed marshall Montgomery claimed that Operation Goodwood had two major aims – the first being to break out from the beaches and the other to destroy the German armoured reserves and draw them away from the US forces that were preparing for Operation Cobra in the western sector.  The plan for the breakout began with a massive aerial bombardment, using the strategic air forces large bombers to decimate the German defending forces then Lt-General Richard OConnors VIII Corps comprising three whole armoured divisions – 11th, 7th and Guards - and spearheaded by Major-General Pip Roberts 11th would then rush forward, overwhelm the defending Germans and causing the armoured forces to move forward and break out from the beach areas. To cover the flanks the Canadians would fight their way to Caen, while the British 3rd Infantry and 51st Highland Divisions would cover the left flank,  and move further eastward.
