On board the Royal Navy coastal minesweeper Curzon (1954) at sea in the English Channel.

On board the Royal Navy coastal minesweeper Curzon (1954) during a traffic route patrol in the English Channel. The photographer is on the port side of the open bridge abreast the mast looking aft showing the funnel, the port derrick post and the ensign at the stern. In the distance is a small, three masted, flush decked motor vessel with an S & B logo on its funnel and this is believed to be the German flagged motor coaster Heinrich S (1964). She is seen from well abaft her starboard beam. The negative has slight image movement.
