HMS Belfast sent in by Warren Swaine

HMS Belfast pictured c.1953 

I served on the Belfast throughout the Korean war, from 1950 to 1953 in fact, and  she did not have the lattice masts fitted until we delivered her to Devonport dockyard for conversion for nuclear warfare in 1953, when they stripped the old 'open' Bridge from her, together with the tripod masts, and converted her to 'as you see her today.  Tony Gatton Thanks to Tony for narrowing down the approximate date we had given this photograph to post 1953.

ADMIRAL OF THE FLEET LORD LEWIN...... My father was Terry Lewin, ultimately he became Admiral of the Fleet Lord Lewin whose last appointment was as Chief of the Defence Staff at the time of the Falklands conflict. He died in January 1999 after which I passed the major part of his "important effects" to the National Maritime Museum (where he had also acted as head of the trustees). His life has been well covered in Richard Hill's authorised biography "Lewin of Greenwich" which is still in print and a good read. Now I am collating other materials about him and would particularly like to hear from all and any former colleagues, ship's companies, national servicemen, anyone, with stories, memories and recollections about him. I am particularly interested in sea jobs (but anything is welcome) which in order from 1939 were;-  Belfast, Valliant, Ashanti, Chequers, Corunna, HMY Britannia, Urchin, Tenby, Hermes.  I am aware that unless I collect these stories now they will soon be lost so please, all of you, try to remember something!            Many thanks, Tim Lewin                                        tim.lewin@btinternet.com

HMS BELFAST.. HOWARD ANDREW COOKE (Andy).. I was wondering if anyone could help me confirm that my uncle Andy served on HMS Belfast while she was in Korea. He would have been 71 on December 26th 2002 but passed away on 31st October. I am trying to put together a remembrance for my Aunt. Contact me at pipp@telusplanet.net
