That's what I call a decent Bow, her Sonar underwater profile was interesting to say the least.

The bow sonar being trialled was the forerunner to what was to be fitted to the Broadswords later in the decade.

The bow sonar was the reason why her scrapping at Blyth was delayed until spring tides. The breakers brought her into Blyth to be broken up in the old drydocks and could'nt get her over the sill for ages because they forgot to include the sonar in her draft.
