Blockade Runner MV Gay Viking

Blockade Runner MV Gay Viking

Here we see the blockade runner MV Gay Viking, a modified Motor Gun Boat that carried out two succesful trips to Sweden to collect essential supplies (in particular ball bearings), before being damaged in a collision late in the war. She sank, but was later raised and entered civilian life, probably surviving into the 1970s.
