Re: From my archive

The Tanker 'Ohio' under air attack with the Cruiser HMS Charybris in the center, a Ju 88 in the sea is passed by an escorting Destroyer. In the distance the battle goes on.
This is more a general impression of the Malta Convoys, than an actual event.

Re: From my archive

HMS JUNIPER
There is a bit of mystery about this one, but first the story, for those who dont know.
During the 'Norwegian campain, Juniper was sent to escort the tanker 'Oil Pioneer' back to the uk.Their luck ran out when they met SHARNHORST, GNEISENAU ADLIRAL HIPPER and 4 destroyers!.
Juniper turned towards the enemy, hoisted her battle ensigns and opened fire with her 12 pdr. She lasted 90 minutes and there were 4 survivors
Now the mystery, I wanted to do a painting of this incredable act of bravery and defiance, so started looking around for a reference phpto of Juniper, I'm still looking, even on this Forum there is an exelent painting of her, unfortunately the reference for it was one of her sisters, same as mine. I have heard that some one has the copy right and has withdrawn all photos of her , which I find very strange.
I welcome any information or comments or even possibly a genuine photo.
With the greatest respect and in rememberance of some very brave men.

A different kind of Marine Painting, the beach at Barra is the Airport, as I'm sure our Western Isles members will confirm. The aircraft is a British European Airways Rapide
