    Read the article below, there were more than one HMS Cynthia, but if you go to the site there are images as well, best of luck

    HMS Cynthia
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Five ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Cynthia. A sixth was planned but never completed:

    HMS Cynthia (1796) was an 18-gun sloop launched in 1796 and broken up in 1809.
    HMS Cynthia (1810) was a 16-gun sloop listed between 1810 and 1815.
    HMS Cynthia (1826) was a 6-gun packet brig purchased in 1826 and wrecked off Barbados on 6 June 1827.
    HMS Cynthia was to have been a Rosario-class wooden screw sloop. She was laid down in 1861 but cancelled in 1863.
    HMS Cynthia (1898) was a destroyer launched in 1898, classified as a D-class destroyer in 1913 and sold in 1920.
    HMS Cynthia (J345) was a Catherine-class minesweeper launched in 1943 and transferred to the Royal Navy under lend-lease. She was returned to the US Navy in 1947.

    Google images may have a picture of the Cynthia or (as a second best option) another Catherine-class ship...
