Affectionately known as Rotton Wotton in 3rd MCM due to the state of her Hull!

1109 was Curzon, then Killiekrankie (Forth RNR), then Bickington (naming convention was particular to the RNR Unit that they were attached to).

I can't see any sweep gear fitted either? The Open Bridge suggests 50/60's?

Too easy. I was waiting for you to speak. And this from Seamanship Training??
Cant see the badge well enough to hazard a guess.

Lol! You know me too well, if the only the old man had known that his delivery of his one way transmission 20 years ago would lead to an unhealthy obsession in Rattan Fenders!
