Date of 1967 I think is way off the mark. The Ikara system which replaced her 4.5 inch mount was installed in a refit which was completed in 1974. GALATEA returned to the Mediteranean in 1978 when she was CAPT F1 which this photo confirms.

Originally posted with a 1967 date but revised following confirmation by Ian Cant (Galatea fBook) "It was 78 without doubt! I did a ships divers taster diving under both ships and was my first foreign run ashore as a 17 year old. Later on in the Med trip we (Galatea) were with Ark Royal"... "probably between Sept & Nov '78".
