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.

This aircraft is Mk.1B (MN570) of Wing Commander R E P Brooker of 123 Wing based at Thorney Island.

Spitfire N3029 (DW-K) was shot down by a Bf109 on the 5th of September 1940 and crash-landed near Gravesend, Kent, thankfully without injury to Sgt Willcocks, the pilot.
