Might be V 2, ex TK 141 at foreground and V 3, ex TK 64 at background.

It is what Finns called 'M-lautta' ('M-barge/ferry'). Bought or otherwise acquired from Germans fairly late in war. Germans called those as Marine Artillerie Leichter which was often abbreviated to MAL

German (auf Deutsch) information on that type of ferries: http://historisches-marinearchiv.de/pro ... eibung.php
Also some in de-wiki: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine-Artillerieleichter

Small bit in English: http://german-navy.de/kriegsmarine/ship ... index.html

Hi Everyone,

What is this RN warship? Pictured in June 1940, France, near Le Havre or Cherbourg.

Many thanks, Dave

AFAIK Finnish waters don't reach as far as Cherboug, so that's wrong forum to ask such a question.
Cheers,
Pawel
