Les Belton joined the Royal Navy in 1947 and served until 1953. He carried a camera and took many photos of the activities of HMS Concord. He was in the ship when HMS Amethyst made good her escape from the Yangtze River and took a series of photos of the ship just after emerging into the East China Sea. His daughter, Julie Newman, has provided scans of this collection to MaritimeQuest and we are proud to be able to publish them on the site.
