Aerial starboard side view of the aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne (II) (R21) and the destroyers HMAS Vendetta (II) (D08) and Voyager (II) (D04). On the carrier's flight two Gannet anti submarine aircraft are spotted forward with another to port abreast the island. Three Sea Venom fighters are spotted aft of the island. A few years later in 1964, Voyager was sunk in a collision with the Melbourne.
