It's cold, blowing a gale and all I can hear in my head is the classic Queen song 'Another one Bites the Dust'!!

Another sad day for the RN Stevo, and a coincidence that its almost 70 years to the day that her predecessor was lost during the battle for Crete (22.5.41).

Yes Ken that is a coincidence. I'm in contact with a lady whose brother died on the Gloucester on that fateful day in 1941 and after all this time, the scares of war are still painful for her. Sadly the war memorial at Southsea although listing her brother's name, they have the date wrong which is upsetting.
