Likely this photo of RICHELIEU was taken on or around 12 September 1945 for the formal surrender of Japanese forces in Indochina at Singapore. It is possible that she visited Singapore after this date, but she was busy in support of French occupation of Indochina, which she started supporting on 16 September 1945.
RICHELIEU departed from Indochina on 29 December 1945 for return to France.
