HMAS Vendetta carrying troops to Tobruk

HMAS Vendetta carrying troops to Tobruk

Here we see a sizable number of soldiers attempting to rest on the decks of the V class destroyer HMAS Vendetta during one of that ship's many runs to the besieged port. The Vendetta made 39 trips to Tobruk between May and August 1941, the most of any ship.

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