Summary: HMS Retainer re-supplies HMS Girdle Ness with a Seaslug missile in RAS trials in the Mediterranean. Cameraship is Girdle Ness.
Description: HMS Retainer and HMS Girdle Ness steam abreast. A heavy jackstay has been rigged and among more conventional loads, a test missile is transferred in a specially constructed cage. The 20 ft missile proves difficult to manage. Preparations are then made for the transfer of fuel using a jackstay fuelling rig - the hose is passed from Girdle Ness to Retainer.
