Photographic Print of A Sea Hurricane being loaded onto an armed merchant ship at Cardiff docks, c.1941
As well as assisting in the transportation of military goods by rail the GWR also facilitated the war effort at their docks. This fascinating image from c.1941 shows a Sea Hurricane being loaded onto an armed merchant ship at the GWR docks in Cardiff. Once on board, the Sea Hurricane would eventually be attached to a catapult, seen here on the deck of the ship. In the absence of a runway the catapult fired the Sea Hurricane at high speed into the air, but unless a nearby aircraft carrier or airstrip was on hand to receive a return landing, the Hurricanes (their pilots having already ejected) would often ditch in the sea
