Could be HMS Gambia, as she served for some years as a part of the RNZN

Belfast was just about the heaviest RN cruiser ever built, but a Light Cruiser nonetheless!

Does that make her a light-heavy cruiser, or a heavy-light cruiser? Must have been quite a sight for the little port of Napier. Appreciate all the comments. Cheers, Brent
