Unidentified 01 - This image was taken at Sliema Ferry, by 1959 at the latest. It includes a number of Royal Navy 'Ton' minesweepers. Until 1959 there were 20 Ton minesweepers based at Malta (104 and 108 MSS). In 1959 various swaps took place between the two squadrons and 104 MSS (12 minesweepers) sailed for Singapore, leaving 108 MSS (8 minesweepers) serving Malta. The rear bus is Gasan bodied and Sliema liveried. The bus in front is unidentifiable although I suspect someone will have a pretty good guess?
