The commissioning crew,
Poole, Dorset, England
With the kind permission of Mr Ray Simpson here are
some photographs of the HMAS Ibis taken in England
before she was commissioned.
Ray writes " I believe this to be the first official photo of Ibis, taken in the UK,prior to her being commissioned
into the RAN in 1962. The photo was taken whilst on pre commissioning trials.
The two other photo's are of the original commissioning
crew, with Allan Lee Beaumont as skipper, taken in Poole, Dorset."
