Colorized photo of the Argentinian vessel ARA Pueyrredón at anchor, before 1922. She'd be scrapped in 1957.

Destroyer Nueva Esparta of the Bolivarian Armada of Venezuela (Navy of Venezuela). Lead ship of a class of three ordered in 1950 from Vickers-Armstrong in the UK and was loosely based on the later Battle class design. The giveaway is the twin QF Mark III in twin mounting BD Mark IV turrets up forward and only small calibre AA weapons aft.
