Three men wearing headsets seated in front of computer screens in the operations room of HMAS Kanimbla. Peter Churcher recalled, "This room was in a sense the strategic heart of the ship containing all the radio and radar tracking devices for the whole Gulf area. I was taken with the cramming together of the people in the confined space with all the technological equipment creating an amazing composition of dark shapes and brilliant lights and colours".
