On dress ship occasions, ships underway fly jacks ,ensigns in harbour position and masthead ensigns. In August, up to her death, it was customary to dress ship on the birthday of Her Majesty The Queen Mother, August 4th. That may be the date of the photo.

Not knowing why she is flying the Red & White Ensign at the extreme ends while underway, is a puzzle to me, normally the flags are raised at these position when alongside, or anchored, this Ton Class Minesweeper commisioned in 1953, and was scrapped in 1988, I am certain there is a plausible answer for this, could have been her last deployment before decommisioning??.
