    Hello Davy,

    Don't despair as I am sure that there are forum members who would love to try to help. Have a read of this thread for instructions as to how to upload pictures.

    I'm not an expert, but she looks like a Tribal Class destroyer, e.g.
    http://www.
    naval-history.net/xGM-Chrono-10DD-34Tribal-Sikh.htm

    But without a number, who knows which one? That site has service records which may identify her if you have anything to match with.

    I believe it is the Duchess. I just looked up Daring Class Destroyers and The Name Duchess rings a bell with me Dads old stories and indeed it was in the Suez War.

    HMAS Duchess was a Daring-class destroyer that served in the Royal Navy as HMS Duchess from 1952 to 1964, and in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) from 1964 to 1980.

    thanks again for help

    If she was involved in the 1956 Suez operation she must be either HMS Defender or HMS Daring - I think these were the only two Daring class vessels involved.
