D32 HMS Camperdown at Plymouth

Battle class Destroyer D32 HMS Camperdown tied up at the Plymouth Navy Days about 1957ish.
Camperdown was built by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company and launched 8/2/1944 commissioned 18/6/1945.
In 1962 she was put on the disposals list but sadly, with no buyers, she was scrapped at Faslane in 1970.

I have an original photograph of HMS Camperdown transiting the Kiel - Canal (Germany) in June 1958 when I was serving on board her. Am willing to contribute this for free use if anyone is interested.
