Swordfish about to land on the Dutch MAC ship Gadila. The ship was manned by the Dutch, the Swordfish were also from the Dutch Fleet Air Arm.

Hi Hal, these were MAC ,Merchant Aircraft Carriers, they still carried cargos, ( no hanger so the a/c stayed on deck) they were either Grain ships or Tankers The dutch Sqd was 860 . For more info Google MAC Ships.
