I showed the site to a guy at work who was at sea for a time. He was asking if there were any details of HMS Plymouth on the site but we couldn't find any.
So I am sure there will be someone out there who has a piccy or some story about the ship.
I only came across her in 1970 when she was on the Rhodesia blockade. I was on the Border Reiver at the time.
Apparently a few months before I joined the Border Reiver, HMS Plymouth had taken someone off who was in a bad way. I don't have any more details....here's throwing it open

Best Wishes

Hi Steve,

I don't know if there were more than one HMS Plymouth so I presume you mean the one that served in the Falklands.

There is one picture in the SN Gallery at :

You can also find some information here: http://www.historicwarships.org/displaypage.asp?page=5

Here is a colleagues and comrades site you might want to check out:

http://www.comradesandcolleagues.com/ROYAL_NAVY/HMS_PLYMOUTH.asp

If you do a Google search using "HMS Plymouth" you will get literally hundreds of hits which should keep you amused for the next month or so. (LOL)

Regards,

Brian

hi Benjydog.

thanks for this info. I am actually with the guy, Paul Venables, who was on the Plymouth (F126) in 1976. he was radio/ electrical engineer at the time.
Sad git he is now in the Fire Service with me! (still sitting on his back-side doing nothing...his words not mine)

I am sure he will use the website links you have sent but if anyone else has any contributions..... feel free.

All the best
Steve Mills
