HMS Biter

Shown here is the 'Archer - ex-USN Long Island' class escort carrier HMS Biter, as seen from the rear cockpit of a Swordfish torpedo-bomber that as just taken off. Note the two Martlet fighters ranged aft, on standby, and the ships of the convoy as they plod on in the background. The carrier has left the convoy to find a wind for launching, and will return as soon as the outgoing patrol is airborne and the incoming one safely onboard. Taken from Allied Escort Carriers of World War Two in action.
