HMS Holmes

Shown here is HMS Holmes (ex-DE-572) in action in the English Channel, late 1944, dropping a depth charge on a possible U-boat contact. Note CSA smoke apparatus on stern, and depth charge throwers in foreground. Each thrower (known as a K-gun in the US Navy) has a rack of reloads and a loading davit alongside it (IWM-A23959).
