Some history can be found here and reads much better than i could write down.

http://www.hmsplymouth.co.uk/history.html

Needless to say HMS Plymouth participated in the 1982 Falklands Conflict. She sailed with Tide Class Tanker

RFA Tidepool and County Class Destroyer HMS Antrim to South Georgia with Royal Marines and SAS aboard...

she is now in docks and has been for some time awaiting her fate which at presant hangs in the balance...

On getting across the docks to where she is moored her grandatuer really is something else..shes huuuuuuuuge!! however...after taking a better look around we realised that yes she is fantastic ..but with no gantry shes out of our reach....big hand in head and sulk moment...very quickly all our maybe this and maybe that ideas diminished into thin air...We have no gantry and a meter mooring gap of sea between us and her...hmmm...

My partner in crime PS quickly put into action his monkey skills and before i knew it hes scaling a rope and throwing me down a rope ladder...the was one way up and this was it...a rickety rope ladder...sea below me and wind and rain..so like some totally terrified jack sparrow i grabbed the ladder and just did it..the getting off was as bad and apoplogies for major torrettes and kicking you in the head PS ..ide say it wont happen again..but it will Anyway once on board i was totally facinated by every part of her...the history and atmosphere on there had to make this one of my most memorable splores ever...hope you enjoy her as i did

thats really nice NK, the beds don't look very big, I wonder how you would stop on one of those in a rough sea.

Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed looking at those.
