The identify of the ship in this picture is somewhat unclear. The IWM labels this as HMS Violet, a C class destroyer. However the pennant number D54 appears to belong to HMS Locust , a B-class ship. However the ship itself has the right number of funnels for the Violet, but the wrong number for the Locust. Whichever ship she is, she has had a searchlight platform added at the rear of the bridge.
