A trio of mine warfare related images dedicated to 'M1188' to address the balance.

These sweep davits were removed from the former HMS Aveley at Pounds yard in late 1987. The ex sweeper arrived at Pounds 21/11/86 from number 2 Basin and remained for a year before breaking commenced. The superstructure was removed before the Ley was towed under the bridge to the beaching grounds in June 1988.

Ha Ha Ta Stevo, much appriciated keep up the supply of phots from Pompy. I don't often get the chance to visit these days, & if I do I've always got the other half with me & she ain't interested in this type of stuff.

Your welcome Sir, there will be other MCMs in due course. Funny things the other 'alfs, they're never interested in our interests yet seem to think we enjoy shopping with them!!!
