Ton class minesweeer completed by Philip at Dartmouth in 1957.
Had a propensity to roll evidently, a schoolpal of mine from Shetland who had been a fishermen all his life was as sick as a dog during his RNR training on a Ton mimesweeper.

In 1971 I went out on post docking trials on the Tyne RNR Ton HMS Northumbria and by the time we got from Shields Engineering (The Haddock Shop!) to the Tyne Piers I was decidedly green!! Would roll in a millpond.
Dramatic down below starting the Deltics with cartridges!
Cheers
Alex

Alex was that the "Northumbria" that was put on the rocks off Berwick and sat in the drydock on the Tyne for months until a decision was made about her future?
