Hi Dom,
I well remember the LOCH RANZA & LOCH MORAR both laid up at anchorage (maybe on buoys?) close to Mountbatten, Plymouth when I was doing pre-sea at Plymouth in 1959

Hi Dom

Thank you for your help. I have printed out your picture and put together a folder for father in law and he thought it was just great...
