1953 - Keel-laying of LEOPARD
25th March. Keel laying Ceremony of the new Anti Aircraft Frigate Leopard by Mrs. A. G. V. Hubback, wife of the Admiral Superintendent. She switched on an automatic welding set that joined two weldments together and thus performed the then modern equivalent of the traditional keel laying ceremony to the great joy of the spectators. After the ceremony the guests were accommodated for lunch in a screened-off area of No. 3 Shipbuilding Shop.
