"This one is a Pearl class screw corvette, launched in 1959 at Chatham. She circumnavigated the world as part of the Royal navy Flying Squadron of 1969, with calls in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan."

I'm guessing 1859 & 1869?

It was an interesting typo. We proof-read these things, but the mind sees what it expects to see -- a contemporary date -- rather than what should have been there. I'm surprised I didn't put that ship in the 21st Century! The date has now been corrected.
