Hello Rolf,
Good photograph but I would suggest that it was actually taken some time after 1954 at which time she was converted to a frigate. Her pennant number changed at this time from R42 to F141. Thanks for sharing the photo.
Sandy.

Saw one of these conversion's (from Destroyer to flush deck Frigate) being carried out at Chatham Dockyard, everything top side had been removed along with most of the euipment in the Hull (for refurbishment), it seemed quite a task at the time. My thinking at that time was, why don't they just build a new vessel(Whaaa).
