---------------------

For those interested HMS Cavalier, was a "C" Class Destroyer, D73, commission in 1944. She had a long life, mainly in the Far East and was only decommissioned in 1974. Obviously, over that time, she underwent several refits.

It says a lot for the quality of the shipbuilding that she served actively for 30 years!

In 2011 they decided to fire her guns again for an event - they worked fine.
