HMS Chichester (F59)

HMS Chichester (F59)

HMS "Chichester" (F59) was a "Salisbury"-class or Type 61 aircraft direction frigate of the British Royal Navy.

Towards the end of her career she was partially disarmed for use as a Hong Kong guard ship and "showing the flag" deployments, due in part to her good range conferred by her diesel machinery.
