Would a Convoy Commodore fly the White Ensign?
Or some other R/ex-RN officer in an offical capacity?
IT seems strange that she is apparently flying the WHITE ENSIGN? it should be the RED ENSIGN as at no time in her history does it mention RN service! with the red decks and partial armament is it during handover trials? or ??
During my trip to NARA last week, I came across this color image of what was described as a "RN Auxiliary" on the envelop. The photo apparently was taken in the summer of 1942 in Hampton Roads, VA.
Can anybody ID her?
The four flag ID code can be made out, but I seem to recall that the RN used different versions than was international convention during the war?
