Was on Green Rover through the final refit at DML, Devonport and then through work up, a short NATO exercise down in the Med and then into Portsmouth where it was fully loaded and stored and placed on a state of 72 hours notice. My "holiday" did'nt last long though as I had a "pier head leap" to Sir Geraint in Portland for BOST after terrible refit in Rosyth.
I much preferred the three original ships although the officers accomodation was marginally better in Gold and Black the engine room and machinery spaces in Green, Blue & Grey were much better laid out. And before someone says they're all the same, they are'nt.
Sold to Indonesians apprx 1992 i think? I remember seeing her either at Portland or Portsmouth in 1991 or 1992 whilst on REGENT or ORANGELEAF. Indonesian flag was flying but still named Green Rover and London as Port of registry.
Blue Rover A270 was sold to Portugal and became NRP Berrio.A5210 in 1993. Green Rover A268 was sold to the Indonesian Navy in 1992 and became KRI Arun. Extensively refitted by Swan Hunter before joining the Indonesians later taking the role as Flagship of the Training Command.
