Royal Navy light cruiser HMS Manchester

Manchester had a relatively short yet active career, and was scuttled on the 13th of August, 1942 after being disabled by Italian motor torpedo boats during Operation Pedestal. 

Her commanding officer, Captain Harold Drew, was court marshalled for this, as the Admiralty believed that Manchester was still able to reach port. While he was found to be guilty, the decision remains controversial. Many of the Manchester’s crew supported Captain Drew’s assessment of the situation and subsequent decision.

‘‘Forgive me, I feel it again. The pull to the light’’

Piece to go with my Rey Belonging piece that you can see right here 

Symbolic art again, sitting in the darkness, his marks behind him are lightsaber marks, and all. The pull to the light is Rey, standing ahead in a brighter light than my Rey piece!
