Huntingdon in the Royal Docks, August 1965.

Any information is welcome.

I bought this photo along with other shipping photos at a car boot sale, the above information is on the back of the photo along with what I presume is the photographers name....G W Goslin.

I suspect that it is a wee bit later around 1967 as her main mast has been removed. I am not sure when that happened I thought it was later than the given date. Great shot of an "H" boat hard at work.
