HMS Searcher

Shown here is the 'Ruler (ex-USN Bogue)' class fighter escort carrier HMS Searcher (ex-USS Breton, ex-merc.Mormacgulf) during Operation 'Tungsten', an attack by Barracudas on the German battleship KMS Tirpitz mounted simultaneously with the running of Covoy JW58 to Murmansk. Her Wildcats, which can be seen here, joined with FAA Corsairs and Hellcats in providing fighter cover for the attacking bombers. Taken from Allied Escort Carriers of World War Two in Action.
