Photo taken 23 - 31 Jan 1946. The ships are..Station Pier inner east HMS Glory, outer east HMS Implacable, outer west HMS Indefatigable. These ships arrived on wednesday 23 Jan 1946 and departed on thursday 31 Jan 1946 with HMS Indefatigable and the destroyer HMS Undaunted bound for England while the rest of the visiting fleet went to Jervis Bay for exercises.

Have now ascertained that the ship at Prince's Pier outer west is the Papanui of the New Zealand Shipping Co. Papanui had been at Victoria Dock berth 6 until Friday 25 Jan, she was then moved to Prince's Pier and departed for New Zealand on Saturday 26 January 1946. Cheers...Tassie
