HMS Belfast

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.

HMS Belfast by Robert Taylor.


HMS Belfast by Robert Taylor.

At the outbreak of World War II, H.M.S. Belfast had already joined the Home Fleet operating out of Scapa Flow. Patrolling north of the Faeroes in October 1939 she came across and captured the German liner Cap Norte. This success was short-lived, however, when she struck a mine, the explosion breaking her back. HMS Belfast rejoined the Home Fleet in November 1942, under the command of Captain (later Admiral Sir Frederick) Parham, HMS Belfast was the largest and arguably the most powerful cruiser in the Royal Navy. After repairs and modernisation she was the best-equipped cruiser afloat. Later she went on to play an important role in the Normandy Landings of June 1944.

HMS Norfolk at the Battle of the North Cape by Ivan Berryman.


HMS Norfolk at the Battle of the North Cape by Ivan Berryman.

HMS Norfolk and HMS Belfast of Force I are shown engaging the Scharnhorst which has already been hit and disabled by both HMS Duke of York and the cruiser HMS Jamaica. Scharnhorst was never to escape the clutches of the British and Norwegian forces for, having been slowed to just a few knots by numerous hits, fell victim to repeated torpedo attacks by the allied cruisers and destroyers that had trapped the German marauder.
