HMAS Castlemaine - Flemish Coil II

My first attempt at a Duotone...

 

HMAS Castlemaine was one of sixty Australian minesweepers (popularly named corvettes) built during World War 2 in Australian shipyards as part of the Commonwealth Government's wartime shipbuilding program. Twenty were built on Admiralty order but commissioned in and manned by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Thirty-six were built for the RAN and four for the Royal Indian Navy. All 56 Royal Australian Navy ships were named after Australian country cities and towns. HMAS Castlemaine is the last one still afloat.
