Default ESPS Galicia

Can anyone explain the function of the numerous "holes" in the flight deck of Galicia, as shown in the accompanying photograph? (Photograph from navaltoday.com)

They look like tie-downs Tim. They consist of a half-spherical cup with a bar across the top, flush with the deck. Cape Breton and Cape Scott had the same type.

Looks like pad eyes for tie down chains to secure aircraft.

Thanks guys ... had suspected that's what they were, but there seem to be so many of them I just wasn't sure!

Am also used to the type shown in FD's photo, rather than the design described by Don.

Thanks again.
