Hi Graham
Don't have the Laird or the Governer but this one might interest you,its
Wave Baron in action fuelling one astern and ready to fuel us port side.
The fuel was necessary- Naval Destroyers are very thirsty - very often the RFA's delivered mail which was very welcome. This was taken in the Med
around 1955-56.
