She attended the Coronation Spithead Review in 1953 and visited Istanbul, Gallipoli and Greece before rendering aid to the Greek Ionian Islands following a devastating earthquake. On her return to New Zealand she escorted the Royal Yacht Gothic during Her Majesty's tour of New Zealand in 1953/54 before carrying out a Vice Regal tour of the Islands. Finally sold for scrap in 1962 and towed to Japan.
