The Gallant Ohio

By Robert Taylor

 

Spitfires providing high cover... Depicted some 60 miles out of Malta, the American tanker Ohio lies dead in the water, her decks almost awash. The destroyer HMS Bramham is lashed alongside the stricken tanker. A second destroyer, HMS Penn, is closing on her starboard quarter, while a third, HMS Ledbury, positions herself astern to provide steerage. An ocean-going tug and a minesweeper have arrived to assist. 

Above, Spitfires of 126 and 185 Squadrons bring down an enemy aircraftmaking a last desperate attack upon the gallant flotilla.  The Ohio made this momentous voyage to Malta and much needed aviation fuel and supplies kept the Island in Allied hands.  Without the success of the Ohio getting through the fate of Malta would have passed into German hands.
