HC Deb 24 October 1956 vol 558 c640
46. Commander Maitland

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will make a statement about the recent activities of H.M.S. "Girdleness", the Royal Navy's guided weapon ship.

Mr. Wingfield Digby

Her Majesty's Ship "Girdleness" commissioned on 24th July last, and has since carried out a number of trials. On 10th September, a test missile, from which a sea-to-air guided missile is being developed, was successfully fired. Other successful firings have followed. A photograph is being released to the Press today.
