This is A Tribal Class destroyer. She completed three tours of duty in Korea and received a ship citation for valour while there. I didn't serve on her, but I have several friends that did. I made this for one of them and he says he plans to donate it to the Naval Museum here in Calgary as they had no pictures of this destroyer and he is a curator.
