The open bridge of HMS Wager, with naval and army visitors and the captain, Lt Cdr R C Watkin RN, looking for’d (and away from the camera), along with Signalman (T) Ted Longshaw (pointing), July 1945

Ted Longshaw writes of this photo: “Taken on the Bridge during sea trials off Auckland following a hurried re-fit. We are in fact testing the 4.7 guns. They make a hell of a noise, and as you can see, I am the only one wearing ear muffs!”
