One of two sisters she still looks great after all the years. I prefer her in traditional garb rather than the Arctic camoflage that was adopted when she was last painted.

I agree with Colin Doug.

I was lucky enough as a young Sea Cadet on be on board her at Fremantle in the early sixties, think it was her last commision.

A great ship and have visited her many years ago in London.

HMS Belfast Harland and Wolff Belfast yard number 1000 Southampton class cruiser. Launched 17th March 1938 (St Patricks day) delivered 3rd August 1939 10173 tons. Belfast has a very special place in the history of H&W and in the hearts of the citizens of the City of Belfast. She was specially allocated the symbolic yard number 1000.
I'll look through my archive and post the photographs I have of this fine ship.
