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.

 Designed by the great Ernst Heinkel, the diminutive D.1 was an essential stop-gap that provided the Austro-Hungarian pilots with a front line fighter until they were able to re-equip with Albatros scouts in the Summer of 1917. This little aircraft performed well and was generally held in high regard by its pilots, although it did have some shortcomings, namely that forward vision was extremely limited and the Schwarzloses gun was completely concealed in the overwing pod that made it inaccessible in the air. Most unusual of all was its interplane strut arrangement, designed to reduce drag, which gave it the nicknames Starstrutter or Spider. These examples are shown passing above the German cruiser Derfflinger.

The B-17 Flying Fortress 'Memphis Belle' returns from one of her 25 mission over France and Germany.  Memphis Belle, a  B-17F-10-BO, USAAF Serial No.41-24485, was supplied to the USAAF on July 15th 1942, and delivered to the 91st Bomb Group in September 1942  at Dow Field, Bangor, Maine.  Memphis Belle deployed to Scotland at Prestwick on September 30th 1942 and went to RAF Kimbolton on October 1st, and then to her permanent base at Bassingbourn on October 14th.1942.  Memphis Belle was the first United States Army Air Force heavy bomber to complete 25 combat missions with her crew intact.  The aircraft and crew then returned to the United States to promote and sell war bonds.  The Memphis Belle B-17 is undergoing extensive restoration at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

 Erich Lowenhardt was already the holder of the Knights Cross 1st and 2nd Class for acts of bravery even before becoming a pilot. After serving as an observer for a year, he was eventually posted to Jasta 10 in 1917 where he immediately began to score victories, sending down balloons and enemy aircraft at a fearsome rate. He was appointed Commander of Jasta 10 one week before his 21st birthday, making him one the youngest pilots to rise to such a rank in the German Army Air Service. He continued to increase his score steadily throughout 1917 and 1918, but was involved in a mid-air collision with a Jasta 11 aircraft on 10th August. Lowenhardt elected to abandon his aircraft, but his parachute failed to deploy and the young ace fell to his death. He flew a number of aircraft, but this yellow-fuselaged Fokker D.VII was his most distinctive and is believed to be the aircraft in which he was killed. His final victory total was 54.

 A trio of Bell Huey UH-1s deliver ARVN Rangers to a drop zone in the central Highlands of Vietnam during 1970. The ubiquitous Huey saw action in an enormous variety of roles, Vietnam being the first true helicopter war, and it will perhaps be remembered by many a grateful GI for its (and its crews) part in many hundreds of daring rescues amid the unyielding and unfamiliar terrain of south east Asia.
