a noble ship with an impressive service record. Well worth a trip to see her .
Friends of ours who are heavily into boats and sailing had their wedding on board, with the reception held in the officers wardroom and the photos taken on and around the 6" gun turrets - bit different
Cheers to her!
Nice looking ship.
Saw this on the news this morning with some of the old boys reminissing!
Happy Birthday old girl !

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Thanks for posting the above links Adrian, I particularly like the image taken on one of the arctic convoys and the tale of Mr.Wills on the newly painted deck! Great to see her so well preserved.
