HMS Mercia

Discussion in 'Royal Naval Reserve (RNR)' started by Jimbo3188, Jun 11, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Had the displeasure of driving through Coventry last week.

    Came accross a red traffic sign "HMS MERCIA". Nearly crashed!

    Obviously had to follow it, took to me to what looked like a huge abandoned factory/warehouse. Certainly ex MOD by the wire etc.

    Googled it and found it was an RNR place. What went on there? Shipbuilding?!!!!!!!
  2. Google says it all.
  3. Was "rationalised" to be merged with HMS Forward. Forward (or Backward to it's friends) is still in existance but in Brum rather than Coventry.
