I remember working on equipt for the original Almirante Condell & Almirante Lynch - both Leander Class Frigates built at Yarrows Glasgow and then the Almirante Riveros and her sister ship Almirante Cochrane....Good old Steam Turbine driven ship plus Aux. Also carried outwork on the Submarine O'Brian...

The amount of Chilean navy vessels ending with Irish sounding names is amazing, I assume these were real people at some point in Chilean history.
