HMS Forth went to Cepholonia in August 1953 for earthquake relief but unaware if she went anyway else apart from Spithead in June 1953 for coronation fleet review - are we sure this picture is 1954 - possible if very early as she could still be in Cepholonia but unlikely.
I can confirm that it is almost certain Fort Duquesne as I cannot remember any other ship at that bouy in 1952/54

Thanks Robin. 1954 is all I have but I can't guarantee it. Eddycreek was completed in September 1953 so it could be later that year.
Ta for Nasprite, your eyes are better than mine!

It appears Forth was on the med cruise in September 1954 (Sardina) so 1954 could well be right
