Prestonian Class Frigates

The La Hulloise and the other Prestonian Class Frigates were originally launched during the Second World War as River class frigates. After the war, they were decommissioned then twenty-one of them were modified and recommissioned as Prestonians. This added a bigger bridge, a taller funnel, new guns, and enclosed the quarterdeck to house two Squid ASW mortars.
