I had not seen this vessel in 22 years but had followed her demise from MOD use, through lay up and being acquired by Pounds in 1986 when demolision actually started. I then stumbled across the ship at Cowes in 1989 where she was restored to her current configuration. The 119 looks in good shape and trust she will see many more years use, not bad for a vessel built back in 1944.

Great that she`s survived after all these years. Who`d have thought that after the photo`s of her in Pounds` yard. Good stuff.
