British Escort Carrier in Bay of Biscay, 1944

British Escort Carrier in Bay of Biscay, 1944

This picture of a British escort carrier was taken in the Bay of Biscay in 1944 from the carrier HMS Campania. A Hellcat and a Seafire can be seen on deck, prepared to provide air cover. One of the carriers was carrying a load of Seafires from Belfast to Gibraltar.

Many thanks to David Horne for sending us these pictures, which came from the collection of his father, Peter Horne, who served with the Fleet Air Arm from 1942 to 1946.
