A workmanlike no nonsence looking vessel.
Where? When? (between 1955 & 1959).
Sorry, not sure but it was such a good picture (in the public domain) that I thought it was worth putting up.
Certainly VG pic, I think she's just getting under way somewhere sunny and has not quite finished stowing the last boat to be hoisted. Hands in 8s? Also rear admiral's flag.
Do you think she may have been entering harbour? Her booms are rigged and awning stanchions are up and ready for the canvas.
Concur, wel spotted, anchor a'cockbill too.
