I think it was early 1970 as I was working at a Naval Radio Station in New Zealand at that time.
From memory Sir Percivale made her trip back to UK around early July 1970.
Any info would be appreciated

The landing ships only became RFAs in Mar 70. I joined Sir Galahad/GSLA in Singapore at that time. Prior to that these ships were managed by British India. Where Percivale/GVTA was at that time I do not know. Sorry cannot be of further help.
