I came across this model of ex-RFA ship in a model exhibition in a shopping centre in Gozo, Malta.



RFA Brown Ranger (A169) was a fleet support tanker of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. During World War II she played an important role in the Malta Convoys and in Pacific operations. From 24 September to 30 September 1941 Brown Ranger was deployed as part of Force S in Operation Halberd, refuelling the ships of convoy WS 11X, enroute from Clyde to Malta via Gibraltar. Brown Ranger deployed again from Gibraltar on 16 November 1941 as part of Operation Chieftain, returning on 18 November. On 11 June 1942 she was part of Force Y in Operation Harpoon, resupplying the escorts of convoy WS 19Z. She was moored at Gan, Addu Atoll in the Maldives, and was used to refuel Royal Navy ships when traversing the Indian Ocean. She also saw service during the Korean War, 25 June 1950 to 27 July 1953, along with 18 other Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessels, and was awarded the battle honour 'Korea 1950-52'.
