I understand that the first picture is a LCM Mk.6 and the second one is a LCVP, no?

I read "Pionier", if so it's the former Polish "Nieuchwytny", a patrolboat on the Weichsel-river.

hi, Roland,

"Hermes" had a different bow (straight). This is TA 32 ex Premuda (it.) ex Dubrovnik (yug.)

Polar bear is correct regarding the ship, but not the name. The picture was taken in spring 1941, when she was still the "Dubrovnik". Later the vessel carried other camouflage-schemes.
