HMS Racehorse from the left

Here we see the C class destroyer HMS Racehorse at sea, with a very bright awning over the port gun position next to the bridge. Other pictures showing awning in this position show it as the same shade as the material around the bridge, and normally with a gap to allow the gun to be operated. This version almost looks like a tent has been placed over the position, perhaps to allow it to be used for extra accomodation.
