York and Edinburgh have a formal decommissioning date of 2019. That will probably include a period at R8, or 'Extended Readiness', basically in a preserved state with engines removed to the reserve pool and deammunitioned. She would be ready to rejoin the fleet at short notice should the need arise. To be honest, however, 42s are very much a thing of the past, designed pre 1973 with engines that are seriosly obsolete and fuel thirsty.
Perhaps I have missed something in the mist of time but why do RN Skimmers have to be namd after an area of the UK.
All the names you have given, except Duncan, were allocated to Daring Class Destroyers built 1952 to 54. Dragon was re-named Decoy before completion. Possibly the best looking destroyer built in UK. A example of this type still exists in Sydney at being an ex-RAN ship.
Duncan was named after a famous Admiral and was last used for HMS Duncan a Blackwood Class 2nd Rate Type 14 Frigate completed at John Thornecroft, Southampton 1958. Pusser has a long tradition of re-using ships names. HMS/m Churchill being about the only new name I can remember being used in recent times.
Of course some names are never used again re: HMS/m Seal the only submarine to surrender after suffering extensive damage in the Kattegat off Denmark on or about 4th May 1941. All the names of the other boats of this class were used again for Porpoise class boats in the 50/60's.
I never said they did Nutty. Was merely quoting from the RN source in Manchester Evening News who said that the T45'S were probably going to be named after regions. Despite fact that ship names had been announced and they obviously were not regions.
