Very nice.
Perhaps you should try something like photobucket.com and direct linking the images from there?

Is the AA a twin Pom Pom or a twin 40mm Bofors?

It's a twin bofors, HMS Belfast in London has identical mountings.

The Ship is what the Aussies call an improved river class or daring class to the rest of the world with an assortment of twin 4.5 inch and twin 40mm bofors in Staag mountings...goldie you dissapoint me ...pom pom.....!Pom poms were replaced by bofors as the secondary AA weapon in all british vessels during WW2:mad:

Thats why I asked...What vintage is the above ship?

Did I tell you I got new glasses?
I think french and Belgian auxiliaries carry the same mount.
