I served aboard both 2758 and 2768 (as Wireless Operator) during 1962 and 1963. At the time, the boats were used by 1151 Marine Craft Unit at RAF Marsaxlokk, Malta. A very happy period in my service life...!

It's been a while since we had any action here. Anyone like to take a crack at this one ? Background: location, Baltimore, ca. 66 [I think - I've gotten 50 yrs older since I took the picture]. Having seen pictures of the Deutschland in Baltimore in 1916, I think this was the same location.

 Undoubtedly one of the truly great Aces of the First World War, William Billy Bishop became celebrated for his technique of actively seeking out the enemy and bringing the fight to him, rather than the more usual practice of patrolling in search of enemy activity. An example of this was his single-handed attack on a German airfield in June 1917 when he destroyed not only a number of aircraft on the ground, but then successfully despatched another seven Albatross scouts that took off to engage him. For this action, he was awarded the Victoria Cross in August 1917 and his final tally when the war ended was 72 confirmed victories. He is depicted here in his Nieuport Scout B1566 in combat with a Pfalz D.III.
