She was indeed a fine ship and should have been preserved, however, BISCO were keen to have her and the Navy "relented"

Can't have been an easy evolution - 'med' berthing an enormous battleship!

Indeed a beautiful ship. Almost 'James Bond', in its style, and class.
However, if the UK can't sort out saving a frigate (H.M.S. Plymouth), Vanguard never had a chance.
