Description

HMTS "Holbrook" and "Duntroon" and U.S. Cruiser "Phoenix" off Australian coast. Dargie noted,"The voyage is nearly done. We awoke one morning, two days out from Fremantle, to find our convoy escorted by a cruiser flying the Stars and Stripes". Dargie completed three watercolour sketches of the same subject.
