Robert served on HMS Gambia between 1946 and 1948.
I think that most of the following images were sent to the original HMS Gamabia Association website by Robert T. Bretherton.
HMS Gambia, Yokohama, 1946
HMS Gambia, The Bund, Shanghai, 1946
This clipping from the China Daily Tribune of either the 4th or 6th of May, 1947 reads:
Rear-Admiral C. H. L. Woodhouse CB, Flag Officer Commanding the 5th Cruiser Squadron, British Pacific Fleet arrived in Shanghai yesterday afternoon on board HMS Gambia (Captain A. J. Baker-Cresswell, DSO, RN)
Rear-Admiral Woodhouse is on his first visit to Shanghai, coming from Japan via Chinwangtao
HMS Gambia was accompanied here by H. M. Indian Ship Godavari (Commander O. G. Karmaker, MBE, Royal Indian Navy.)
