Eighteen months later, she is still available (to my knowledge), but no longer shown on the above www-link - at least not today!
She is the only "original" LSL, and has NOT been lengthened, SLEP'd, re-built, sank, or in any other way messed about with, like the remainder of her sisters.
A surprise therefore that Sir Tristram, although . .
" . . badly damaged in the Falklands conflict . . (and which) was subsequently reconstructed to an enhanced standard , with a new mid-body hull section added to the ship. This reconstruction was taken as the starting point for a projected Ship Life Extension Programme (SLEP) for the other . . of the class" . .
. . has been chosed to become the (static) Special Forces training ship - to replace Rame Head.
I would have thought the disposal folk would have found more readily, a buyer for the re-worked Sir Tristram, instead of which they are still left with the "original", and last to be built (1968), shorter, LSL, Sir Percivale, to find a home for.
I'd like to buy it for Strawberry to play with, but even after quite some time spent on research, can not think of a remunerative employment for her that would ensure she was self-financing!
