Object description

A striking view of a Malta bound convoy silhouetted against a setting sun and carrying enough supplies for months as seen from the cruiser EURYALUS, one of the escorting warships. The 8th Army Victory in North Africa helped the island of Malta as convoys could be protected from Libyan Air Bases with some convoys getting through without meeting any Axis forces.
