As always Steve it's great to see your collection, but it still angers me to see a 10-12 year old ship on the trot like this. The stretched 22's were such a great operating platform and should still be a great asset to us now.
I heard that Beaver was in poor nick, maybe Warship Disposal can confirm this, hence why she went to the breakers pretty quick. I do agree thought that these ships premature retirement was a crime. Why we couldn't maintain a standby squadron is beyond me.
