Kent and Jupiter, but any ideas on the other 2 Leanders astern? they look like an Ikara and a Seawolf
Kent still looks good, you really can't beat a County class.

The other Seawolf was Hermione as Charybdis, the only other Seawolf laid up at that time was in the basin having her screws removed. Best guess for the other is an Exocet Leander. All the Ikaras had gone by this point and as the funnel number is 7th this suggest Exocets. It's not a Towed Array version and so could be Minerva with the 965 removed or there is a remote chance it could have been Juno.

looks like Juno. No Seacat at the rear and I cant make out any Borfers abreast the formast. Also Minerva had the cone antenna on her formast.

I must have taken a picture at nearly the same time and same place, which I posted a while back, mine was very poor quality though!
