I think this must be the ex. R.C.N. frigate referred to by Pusser which operated as a stand-in cruising pilot cutter in 1949.

I do believe this is the one. The hull is definitely a "River", but the upper works certainly were altered! I dimly remember the Navigator of HMCS Mackenzie about 1975 had a pamphlet from Burrard's in Vancouver which showed Hooghly in both her before and after configurations. Thanks for that.

And the lower photo shows the one built by Blyth D. D. & S. B. Company in 1964 for 'Commissioners for the Port of Calcutta'.
