Brutal, facinating and sad. This is one of those phots you can't help but stare at.

These breaker yards have no pity when they start the breakup of a "matelots" old home and workplace, there will be a tear or two from some old shipmates on seeing your pic Buggins, mate.

An interesting perspective Buggins. Judging from your other photo I would assume this shot was taken standing high up on Euryalus?

If you had not put a name to this photo I would have a hard time telling she used to be a Leander class!

Macca - quite correct. Although the sight of a ship in this state is not pleasant it does let one see the inards. In this view there is the hatch into the Ikara magazine and this seems to be the handling room for bits of the Ikara rounds with the "slot" further aft down into the deep magazine.
