Many of you here in the U.K. will have heard of the imminent scrapping of the Type 12 Frigate HMS Plymouth. She played an important role in the Falklands War, surviving being bombed and being the vessel on which the Argentines surrendered in 1982.
She was decomissioned in 1988, and since that time she has been a virtual time capsule, almost like the Marie Celeste, with things just put down and left by the crew. The ship was kept as a floating museum in a Naval dockyard, but hardly any visitors bothered visiting there, even at only £1.00 a go.
Attempts to save this historic ship for the nation, similar to HMS Belfast, failed in April this year and she has been sold for scrap abroad.
A terrible shame for a symbol of one of this countries greatest military achievements since the Second World War.
Here's an interesting slide show of this 'Ghost Ship'.
