Hi Ian,
Thanks for posting -I had not seen a photo from this angle before.
They were A.N.D. gear - Admiralty Net Defence.
I sailed in two ships with this gear during the war and both were on
maiden voyage from the Clyde.
Cape Howe of Lyle's and Neritina of Anglo Saxon Petroleum Co,
1943 and 1943/44.

I also sailed in two Liberty ships - Sampep 1945...Houlder Bros Managers,
City of Ely ex Samarina of Ellerman Lines.
Regards,
Stan
