Milbrook, Manly & Mentor were the Inshore Training Squadron and attached to HMS Raleigh. Tony Mead was the squadron boss in 1990, and he is now the harbour Master at Conwy.

There was another one called the Menai. She was another sister and wasn't part of the Inshore Training Squadron. I think she was attached to the Royal Marines for some reason. Could anyone confirm this?

As for the Inshore Training Squadron, I sailed on HMS Manly, in company with the other two from Liverpool to Plymouth in either May 1982 or May 1983. It was my first experiance of going to Sea with the Sea Cadets. It was blowing a force 8 most of the way, though the Irish Sea.

Hello,

I am the Captain of Milbrook at the moment, she is now doing expeditions, charter and diving trips.
The website is www.milbrookexpeditions.es
There is a galerie and dossier of her in the website.
I will like to get some good quality pictures of her when she was a fleet tender.
Does anyone have pictures of Milbrook?
My email is [email protected]

Thanks
