Leander Class (Ikara) Frigate

F104 HMNZS Southland (ex-HMS Dido)


Taken at the Port of Tauranga, August 1991. This image shows the port side looking to the starboard rear quarter past the bridge and radar mast. Part of the Ikara launcher mounting is visible forward of the bridge. One of the 40mm mountings is visible aft of the bridge, in front of the funnel. The RNZN does not operate in mufti - there are number of open-day visitors about.
