Using a rake, Wren Unknown moves a 'ship' across the numbered grid map on the Plotting Table of the Operations Room at HMS EAGLET. The Chief of Staff stands to her left, on the right hand side of the photograph, and watches the action unfold. More Wrens can be seen at work around the table, including one using the telephone, and a member of the Royal Navy can also be seen in the background.
