Welcome aboard, waterwall.
Plenty of Grey Funnel in the crew and a few who may be able to help.
Find your way around the ship and join in.
Enjoy the nostalgia trip.

Welcome to SN Waterwall, Im currently away from home at the moment but I think you are looking for info on the shoreham class sloop Weston seen HERE (http://www.battleships-cruisers.co.uk/shoreham.htm) and HERE (http://naval-history.net/xGM-Chrono-18SL-Weston.htm)
I will look in again when I get back to see if you need any more info

.Hi, welcome aboard. HMS Weston was a falmouth class sloop, launched 23rd July 1932, scrapped in 1947.She was affectionately known by the jack tars as "Aggie on horseback" because of Dame Aggie Weston.They were 266' x 34' , speed 16 knots and carried 2x4" guns. I think they were built as minesweepers with ancilliaryaroles as anti submarine.
