The Foreigners' Mess on board the Polish Navy destroyer ORP Piorun. The seven British ratings in the mess they have to themselves, left to right: coder (who kept a boarding house in civilian life), signalman (Bank of England clerk), signalman (timber merchant), and telegraphist and signalman (regulars). Playing darts are the anti-U-boat worker and HO signalman, while the other men are playing chess or writing letters. The anti-sub man was awarded the DSM for his work.
