In the large photograph a kit has been finished and painted in what appears to have been a graded camouflage patter with a lighter grey funnel and masts. The landing craft are also painted light grey to match a photograph. A month after D-Day, Empire Halberd hit a mine off Lands End that had been laid by a U-boat. The damage was aroud the rudder and the ship was repaired in the UK. While in dock, the ship was purchased by the Royal Navy and re-named HMS Silvio. In 1946, she was returned to the US.
