Yes, the bridge design was narrow at the front. The Captain`s chair was two windows back from the front.

Is it the angle or does she have a very odd shaped bridge ?

A nice photo of a fine ship indeed. For an up to date report on HMS Lynx please have a look at the latest edition of Warship World Pictorial Review Issue no.18, ISBN 1754-2707, £3.50. It is a seperate supplement to the Warship World July/Aug edition. The WWPV has a 6 page colour report on the Lynx and also ex HMS Llandaff F61 now Umar Farooq & ex HMS Jaguar F37 now Ali Haider. It is reported that the Bangladeshi crews have immense pride in them and that they are in good condition. I have heard reports that Portsmouth are looking for a 20th century warship to display as a museum ship, perhaps we may see one of these three ships restored one day ?, Clive

Sorry about the mistypes in my Jan 31st comment. For"he" read "the" and for "turrete" read "turrets"

Nice to see the old girl again. I was her last CO and handed her over to thr Bangladesh Navy 5 days before the Falklands war started. With he long endurance and two twin 4.5 turrete, she would have been ideal down there. Ted Seath

Good to see the old shell company berth (backdrop)along with the Birkenhead wharves, they arent there now...the Adelaide Cement Co has taken it all over.

Superb shot Chris, it's great to see these older warships in RN service. Thanks for posting.

Remarkable pic, Mr. Finney.

This ship has been in service for the last 50 years; quite a service record.
