HMAS Nestor going down

HMAS Nestor went down a few minutes after this photo was taken from HMS Javelin, which had rescued the crew. HMAS Nestor had been bombed off the coast of Crete and was abandoned and scuttled on the morning of 16 June 1942.

Most interesting set of photos. Action photographs from the War are not common, perhaps because crews had more pressing things to do than take photographs, and films were probably scarce.
