Dear [email address] on behalf of Defence Business Services Secrtariat,

Thank you for your reply with both ships qualifying and not qualifying.
No ships that qualified between the 21st Dec 1963 and the 26th March 1964 are listed.

The specific ship I am looking for is not listed in either annex.
HMS Blackpool F77 was the leader of the 6th Frigate Squadron between 1958 and 1960 and did complete Cyprus patrols.

Do you have any details on the Blackpool and her time on patrols.

Yours sincerely,

antony atkin
