Must have been just around her maiden cruise, as she was only launched in 1963.
Certainly looks nice and tiddly.
I only ever saw her when she was being used for Seawolf trials.

I also recall her spending many months in and around South yard at Devonport, undertaking her Sea Wolf trial role.
she had a slow operational start, initially she conducted hull noise trials involving the mothballing of her armament, then the gun was removed for further trials until she underwent a refit to conduct Sea Wolf Trials. She only became fully operational after her Exocet conversion in the late 70's.
