HMS Suffolk is welcomed as she comes alongside for Navy Week in August 1935.

The Kent class cruiser was the fifth to bear the name and was built in Portsmouth dockyard.

She was launched on February 16, 1926, by the Marchioness of Bristol when it took six attempts to break the champagne bottle on her bow.
