food for britain

from a painting by C. M. S. Beans

A 37-ship convoy under attack, November 1940. In the foreground is the Rangitiki carrying New Zealand produce.

The escort ship, Jervis Bay, hopelessly outgunned, turns and steams at full speed towards the raider, a sacrifice which saved most of the convoy.
