Here is an official Courier Mail photograph from
May, 1962 of Collett as she was about to go alongside Australian
Carrier Melbourne in Manila Bay. The ship in the background is
supposed to be Australian Destroyer Vendetta D08, and hovering
overhead is an American Helicopter. As a sidebar, we all know about
Collett's collision with the Ahman, but the Melbourne surpassed
Collett's record by far. She Collided with U.S. Destroyer Frank E.
Evans on June 3, 1969, and also with Australian destroyer HMAS
Voyager D04 on 10 February, 1964. Do you think she (Melbourne) just
didn't like those pesky little Destroyers hovering around her?
