Leander Class (Ikara) Frigate

F104 HMNZS Southland (ex-HMS Dido)


Taken at the Port of Tauranga, August 1991. A view of the port side looking forward. As can be seen from the sky, it wasn't that nice a day - and an awning was fitted over the flight deck. The entrance to the hanger can be seen behind this. The quad-SeaCat SAM mountings can also be seen on each side of the superstructure above the hanger.
