Thanks go to Ronda Hill, WG Arnold’s Grandaughter, for the above photos. It is possible that the middle picture was taken when a Dunedin prize crew was in South Africa having taken the French Vichy merchant ship, Ville de Rouen, to Cape Town. We cannot be sure.

Thanks go also to Mary Goodlad, WG Arnold’s daughter, who travelled from Shetland with her sister-in-law, Janet Cummings, and also her sister, Avril Smith, who lives in Hampshire, for the photos below. Click on the thumbnails for larger images.
