IWM A1253 ammunitioning
Ammunitioning, HMS Vanity, 1940. Image copr. IWM 1253.

Commenced embarking ammunition of various types ie 6″, 4″, 40mm. 20mm. from two lighters soon after 0800. This was completed before 1600. I personally was rather disappointed at the large quantity of 6″ practice shells that came aboard. I suppose that bombardment exercises will dispose of a lot though, anyway.
