HMS ACTIVE = SINKEX TARGET

Old ships (twice). best draft of my career (second time).

Sad end but perhaps better than being chopped up for scrap.
Looks like they used Avenger as a sinkex also.

My 3 are not mentioned as scraped or sunk (yet).
Amazon and Alacrity - both decommissioned in 2014
Arrow - still going? Considering she was commissioned 29 July 1976 (6 weeks before I joined up), that's some good going!!

According to Wiki Ambuscade and Arrow are still in service with Pakistan.

When Active's sinkex appeared on faecesbook last week someone mentioned that Amazon had also been used as a target at around the same time.

I haven't dug into the internet to verify that though.

What's that?
A errant Irish trawler post Brexit?
Dunno!! 1000tonn of what was floating junk!!! Only thing left in 40 seconds was a boiler!!!!
The angle iron below and left of the rotors passed over the top of us. We were a tad close. (Had to get lethality images for the boffins). The crew who took that pic was there for distance and PR shots!!.

I agree about better than being chopped up for scrap a modern day Viking funeral

You must have come round our mess on Lancaster in Bermuda then. Remember Active's chiefs mess coming over with a barrel.
We took over Wigs from you. Also had Jenny the parrot passed over to us.

I hadn't passed my Fleetboard then I done it on the passage home and got rated just afterwards
Spent many a watch in the SCC with Jenny hopping round the panels
