Great pics.  Somebody recently has done a Colossus carrier hull recently and had it advertised somewhere.  Looked a very nice hull.

Colin......she must have been a member of the British Pacific fleet as I see her below.....just east of the Sydney harbour bridge & also @ the wharves just across from Garden Island Dockyard ....[my old place of work]..... %) ....

Looking further...she could also be in the Captain Cook graving dock @ GID?............the buildings to the right look familiar....for 40 years ago?........

Also the very first image is HMS Glory departing with Sydneys North Head on the port quarter.... O0.......Derek

Colin the surrender is probably the Island of Rabaul in 1945, she then went up to assist in the retaking of Hong Kong (according to Wiki)
and then headed down to OZ.
They are great pictureds  :-)) :-)) :-))
