HMS Ekins

Shown here is HMS Ekins (ex-DE-87) oiling in convoy in very calm weather, for the North Atlantic. Note oiling hose over tanker's stern, ans anchors lowered a'cockbill, to reduce snags for hoses. The weather was seldom smooth as this. Note the dark grey tops of the gun barrels and deck for camouflage from the air.
