Lazaretto Creek 1959-601105 viewsWinter of 1959/1960. HMS Ausonia with alongside to right, HMS Lofoten (LST3027), a 108MSS Ton minesweeper (I think Leverton), HM Tug Brigand (A383) and Ford class launch. To the left the destroyer HMS Dainty (D108) and forward a Weapon Destroyer, probably HMS Crossbow (D96). Forward of these are three LCTs incl HMS Redoubt. To the left the two LSTs are Charles Macleod (ex LST3021) managed by British India Steam Navigation on behalf of the Army and behind it HMS Anzio (LST3003). The remainder of the large number of vessels formed part of the reserve fleet. Notice particularly open fields behind Gzira and Ta’ Xbiex.
