I think I posted this a while back. Sea Vixen getting airborne from HMS Centaur with HMS Carysford as plane guard, (chopper U/S in Hangar) Carysford is about to recieve two red Very Flares fired as 'wave off' for the Gannet on finals!, as a 'rocket' from Centaurs skipper for being out of station.
This was a commission for a guy who served on both.

Lovely stuff ,this looks bigger than the normal ones? What is the story "as a 'rocket' from Centaurs skipper for being out of station."

Carysford should be farther out, but if correctly placed would have been off the canvas. 'Plane Gaurd' was a ship stationed for rescue purposes, pre Helicopter days. For Launch, stationed off the port Bow, and landing, off the Port Quarter (at the back out to the left).
