This photograph of HMS Ausonia seen here in Taxbiex Creek, Malta, appeared in the Huddersfield Daily Examiner newspaper on Monday 17th February 1964. HMS Ausonia had been put on 12 hours’ notice to sail to Cyprus, in case she was needed to evacuate British families from the island during the fighting between the Turks and the Greeks. At the time, HMS Ausonia was attached to the British Mediterranean Fleet based at Malta and as can been seen in the photograph, all the submarines and other craft which were normally alongside her, had been moved away in readiness.
