Description

Another change in the title again, after much discussion, now into HMS Vigilant.

Previously: Martin asked me to change the heading, originally 'HMS Teazer at Portland', but now indentified as the HMS Ulster. See original description and comments below:

F23, which I assume to be HMS Teazer, a Type 16 anti-submarine frigate, was converted from the hull of a J-class World War II destroyer in 1953-4. She was equipped with a 4" gun, squid anti-submarine mortars and bofors secondary armament. She was probably operating as an escort to HMS Tiger, also moored in Portland harbour at the time, and one of the Royal Navy's last cruisers. The frigate was broken up in 1965.
