    Background: The Canadian destroyer "HMCS Restigouche" is currently in Gibraltar harbour. It is waiting to escort the Canadian aircraft carrier "Bonaventure" to Cyprus.

    "Bonaventure" left Halifax on Wednesday with a contingent of soldiers for the United Nations Peace Force in Cyprus.

    "HMCS Restigouche" is the first of a class of destroyer developed from the "St. Laurent" class and incorporates many advances in armament and submarine detection. It has 3 inch 70 calibre guns mounted forward and twin 3 inch 50 calibre guns aft. It also carries homing torpedoes.
