The old D118 HMS Battleaxe

Compact and bijou Destroyers and a sort of trial run for the original Darings. My old sea cadet unit was TS Scorpion so I took a bit of an interest in them.
I think she was one of our escorts, 1961 or thereabouts, and was scrapped a couple of years later. Of course the D118 was given to HMS Coventry of the Falklands fame.

HMS Scorpion. NB MRS6[?] director as against CRBFD on Battleaxe. This pic is from 1952, before Scorpion's radar picket conversion.
