Description

Figures of two men charting the ship's course on the deck of HMAS Kanimbla. Peter Churcher recalled, "This is the interior on the HMAS Kanimbla. Man on left is at the helm. During the ship's course the captain's chair can be seen in the background and on the right the person is surveying the naval charts. The two men are constantly working together indicating the course that has been plotted".
