Hi Ken:

The Tribals look they are being pulled from service here - as the DDHs' coming on line?

BTW that must be the ex-RCN ice-breaker 'Labrador' stern-to, at the floating dry-dock. Helicopter deck, stern-notch and lattice-mast - in the black hull and white upper-works of Canadian Marine Service (1963 became Candian Coast Guard) of Dept. of Transport.

Great photo.

Regards, from New Brunswick,
