RFA Maine (1)405 viewsMike Day Collection.
The Hospital Ship is in Lazaretto Creek. Behind are probably the depot ships Leander (ex cruiser) & Tyne which are dressed with German Ensigns probably in honour of the Kaiser during his visit in 1904. In the background is the beginnings of Gzira with the RN Canteen and Manoel Island bridge.
The story of the Maines.
