Troops were evacuated from various points on the Greek coastline, all types of shipping being pressed into use. This shot shows some of the legation staff and a few Aussies, including members of 4 Australian Wireless Section, being landed at Crete from a British armed trawler, the HMS Moonshine. The first part of the trip for these people was on a tiny Greek coastal vessel, the Else, which also had a cargo of 150 German prisoners... conditions were pretty bad.
