HMS Matapan (D43) as converted to sonar trials ship

I looking for details of any kind (photos, lines, body plan etc. etc.... anything at all really) relating to HMS Matapan's (D43) Cold War era conversion to sonar trials ship... can anyone help please?

I'm interested in details for the whole ship, but especially below the waterline (i.e. the sonar skeg/false-keel). I've attached a profile from Norman Friedman's British Destroyers & Frigates and a photo I have of her in dry dock (I'd love to find photos without the scaffolding in place!).

Many thanks

Andy

Here are some more shots of the sonar skeg/false-keel from when she was laid up for scrapping in 1979. I'd really, really like more photos like this, including ones from the aft end of skeg/keel please...
