HMS Fencer battling the rough seas.
A remarkable wartime photo album that highlights the perilous nature of landing a fighter plane on an aircraft carrier in heavy seas has been unearthed.
The black and white snaps show several Royal Naval aircraft coming a cropper while attempting to land on board HMS Fencer often in heavy seas.
One set of images depict a Swordfish biplane crashing into the sea a few hundred yards off the aircraft carrier HMS Fencer.
Other photos show a Supermarine Seafire about the crash into the superstructure.
The album will be sold by Charterhouse Auctioneers in Sherborne, Dorset.
