    Looks like a combination of the various design iterations of the Surrey - the short straight stacks are from one of the middle designs, while the bridge is from the final design. In the final design, the stacks were taller, reflecting experience from the previous cruisers.

    Probably at Malta in November '37, on her way to East Indies Station, judging from her buff colored stacks & Spanish Civil War neutrality stripes on turret B.
