H.M.S. Dainty Speaking Tube

Original speaking tube mouthpiece in aluminium and brass with plaque named to Captain of Turret. On the heavy brass bolt is engraved H.M.S. Dainty and the date in roman numerals MCDLXXI. H.M.S. Dainty was a Destoyer, 2610 tons and measured 290 feet long. She was built in 1950 and carried 6 4.5" guns and we assume this speaking tube was removed from one of the turrets when she was broken up in 1971. Measures 8" (21 cm.)
