Thank you for the great photo! They don't build 'em like that any more. Absolutely fabulous memories.

Best wishes

"Fourth" destroyer squadron! And how many destroyers in total can the RN find today? Answer- just 4 active, plus one working up. How things have changed since '56

I was serving as the Squadron Communications Officer in AGINCOURT at that time.
Steve, ships designated as Squadron Leaders, ie, commanded by the Captain (D), did not display their pendant (hull) numbers - for some reason. I don't think we have squadrons nowadays - not enough ships, as Jock3 says - so there won't be any squadron leaders or Captains (D) either.
