Captain Packer, of HMS WARSPITE (on right) phone to his ear, directing the bombardment Reggio on the "toe" of the Italian mainland at the opening of the offensive against it, from the bridge of the battleship, while the navigator (centre) and the officer of the watch stand by. Note the men are wearing anti-flash hoods beneath their helmets possibly to prevent sunburn.
