Female officer in training for steering the ship HMAS Adelaide. Several merchant vessels surround the ship. Peter Churcher recalled, "I spent one day on the Adelaide. In the morning I painted the small panel of the operations room and after lunch I went up to the bridge where a young female officer was at the helm. She was in training for steering the vessel. Outside all around us were the merchant vessel ships moored in the Komisky area".
