A 50ft Steam Picket of HMS Resolution, probably around 1942-1943 (East Africa). A US navy style 50ft Motor Launch—which she may received while being repaired at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard—and a 32 ft cutter flank the picket. Note that the camouflage pattern of HMS Resolution is carried over both the launch and the picket.
