A group of sailors surround the ship's cat "Convoy", as he sleeps in a miniature hammock on board HMS HERMIONE. According to the original caption, "Convoy" is in the ship's book and provided with full kit. The cat obtained his name because of the number of times he accompanied the ship on duty patrols.
