When the Ton's were first built, quite a lot were put straight into reserve, with the "hutments" covering the decks.

This is Bevington being 'Un-Arked' prior to her conversion and sale to Argentina as ARA TIERRA DEL FUEGO

This photograph appears to be of the Vosper Thornycroft Yard in 1968 which could mean that the 1954 built Bevington and the 1956 Santon were being refitted by VT after their sale to Argentina who had the sense to fit active stabiliser's to them doing away I presume with the acoustic side sweeps? Both had been held in Reserve at Hythe prior to their sale although unlike other Ton's they did at least see some Service with the RN.

the date is earlier than 1968, but in 1966 shortly after their arrival. The fpb probably one of a number of Kris class built for Malaysia.

This is the Camber at Portsmouth isn't it? That's the Bridge Tavern on the right. The small vessel is likely to be Cutlass, Sabre or Scmiter.
