Loading Depth Charges onto HMAS Vampire

Here we see a depth charge being winched onto the V class flotilla leader HMAS Vampire from an ammuntion barge at some point in 1940. This picture shows how much work was needed to keep these ships fully armed.

This picture comes from the collection of the Australian War Memorial, and is in the public domain.
