Mystery Corvette: La Decouverte, ex HMS Windrush,

One of my correspondents sent me this pic of what looks like a River Corvette high and dry which he spotted a few miles out of Cherbourgh, possibly in the 50's or 60's. Can anybody help with an ID?

Solved: HMS Windrush,

She the Ex RN River Class frigate WINDRUSH as the French Navy's LUCIFER she was re-named LA DECOUVERTE when first transfered from the RN i believe she's some sort of fire fighting training vessel.It was rumoured that she was to be towed away and broken up last year, so she may not be there anymore.
