HMCS Prince Robert as anti-aircraft cruiser
Here we see the converted passenger ship and refrigerated cargo HMCS Prince Robert in her second wartime configuration as an anti-aircraft cruiser. It it just possible to make out the twin guns in her main gun mounts - in her first incarnation as an armed merchant cruiser she had single 6in gun mounts, but they were replaced with twin 4in dual purpose guns for her new role.
