Hadleigh Castle - F355

I "found" this photo on the web and as there doesn't appear to be a central place for shipbreaking on the Tyne other than here I thought I would add it "for the record"
Photo shows HMS HADLEIGH CASTLE being broken up at CW Dorkin's yard at Gateshead. Miramar and Tees Built have "Broken up at Gateshead 01/1959".
She was of course a product of Smith's Dock at South Bank in 1943.
