If that were a pic from today, that's 1/3 of our frigate force!

Hardy (F54)was used for harbour duties until sunk as a target in 1983

Dundas (F48) was scrapped in 1983

I think Teazer was a Tenacious class indeed scrapped in 1965

Cheers for that Steve.Iv'e just had a browse on the net and found H.M.S.Teaser on the following web site www.maritimequest.com and its under warships and sub heading "destroyers" they say she was a "T" class so that doesn't help very much.Launched January 1943,Commissioned September 1943,paid off July 1961 and scrapped in 1965 at Dalmuir Scotland.

Hi Jim
What a sad state our Navy is in.I remember the Fleet review in the 50's didn't only use the Solent for parking up they used the whole of the Spithead area and stretched for miles.I use to view the ships from Haylands on the Isle of Wight,as a nipper,like us Isle of Wighters would say.
