As the last operational steam recip. L.S.T. in the British fleet, although she was downrated to a cross channel ferry carrying vehicles and ammunition only when she had lost her passenger certificate, I always felt that she could have been preserved.

C'mon, you know like most of us. The RN or it's Admirals are not interested in preserving our heritage, unless there is a knighthood attached
