Perhaps the old dog waited until they came up with a real corker. I had the immense pleasure (and considerable struggle internally) to get a Sharpeye as one of the last tasks before I was scrapped. I did see a Photoplot when working some of a long leave out of Eastham depot. It seemed to make a Radiolocator (not the new which I did sail with later, and the only S band of the line at that time but the 1970s version). Pleased we didn't use chemicals except for cleaning!
