Great original painting, signed as Teo C S Singapore '86, ....it looks to be acrylic on cloth I think. An excellent depiction of HM.S. SOUTHLAND (ex H.M.S. DIDO RN) measuring 23 1/2" x 11 1/2" framed. HMS Dido (F104) was a Royal Navy (RN) Leander class Batch 2TA frigate. Entering service in 1961, Dido was involved in the Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation, served with NATO's Standing Naval Force Atlantic on several occasions, and was one of the frigates used for the filming of the drama series Warship. Following a defence review at the start of the 1980s, the ship was transferred to the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN), and was recommissioned as H.M.S. Southland. Southland remained in service until 1995. After decommissioning, the frigate was towed to the Philippines, where her boilers were removed, then to India for scrapping.
