Scylla

Scylla

Photographed at Portsmouth on 19 May 1988
She was a Leander-class frigate of the Royal Navy (RN). She was built at Devonport Royal Dockyard and was the last RN frigate to be built at the Dockyard to date (2010). Scylla was launched in August 1968 and commissioned in 1970. It was the start of a long and eventful career that ended with her sinking as an artificial reef in 2004.
Between 1980 and 1984, Scylla underwent modernisation, including having Exocet and Sea Wolf missile launchers fitted, forcing Scylla to miss the Falklands War of 1982.
