FORT DUQUESNE as TACOMA

Many thanks to Old Strawberry for identifying the ship which took the role of TACOMA in The Battle Of The River Plate.
This is the sequence towards the end of the film in which she features. Looks like a heli-deck aft?

Nice shot :) Yes this was taken just off the coast of Malta. My grandfather was a seaman onboard RFA Fort Duquesne during the filming of the movie. He was onboard Fort Duquesne from May 1955 till December 1956.
