BAP "Coronel Bolognesi"

Has any of the members any photos of the ex British cruiser "Ceylon" pictured in the Peruvian Navy colours and sporting their ensign, she was renamed "Coronel Bolognesi" and sailed under the Peruvian flag from Portsmouth in February 1960, she was in service with this navy until August 1985 when she was decommissioned and scrapped.

Hello, I'm new here and have to find out how to upload pictures. Some years ago I bought a beautiful book of Peruvian cruisers from John Rodriguez Asti. I could make some scans of this ship if you like.

regards, Rob

RobCh 81 and ondino, I must apologise to you both for not getting back to you for the interest in my old ship when she served in the Royal Navy before being bought by the Peruvian Navy in February 1960, I kept coming back to this site to see if anyone had posted a photo of her in her new colours but gave up after a while when none were forth coming,today I returned and low and behold we have an excellent photo which will be put into my collection with your permission, thanks again guys.

Aye, Dave.

Dad would have been in his elements to have seen her at Pompy Navy days ( I use to go as a kid quite often ) in the 70's if the Peruvian Navy had come over with her...
