HMS HERMES

Task Group enroute Fremantle, Australia. From left: MINERVA, TIDEREACH, HERMES, RELIANT, GALATEA and RETAINER. I wonder did they undertake an alteration of course for practice purposes !!

with great difficulty, turning port to starboard from the carrier with the carrier heading straight ahead, after all supply lines had been dispatched unless some poor s-d didn't know his/her **** from their elbow , remember in 1959 when on exercise out in the China Sea an order was given at night to all ships in line abreast to alter coarse to port, one ship either didn't get the order and was in collision with a cruiser, one man killed and 3 injured----INS MYSORE and the destroyer HOGUE.
