HMS YORK the last day

Yesterday I watched a gracefull lady of the sea cross the bar, YORK was a thoroughbred had her moods but a stallion of the seas a sleek grey messenger. She tolerated us mere mortals, was gracefull and at the end consumately dignified, her ships company gave her a memorable fine farewell. Memories will always remain of the men I served with, their courage through adversity, their laughter and dedication to the service and their country.
I am not ashamed to say I shed a tear as the White Ensign came down for the last time, but fcuk she still looked good at 27 and I still think she could give the young guns a run for their money - because as we all know we men prefer older women.
And my daughter finally got to see her name on the ships bell.

I had just bought the War of the Worlds concept double album (for those of a younger than 30 age, an album was like a CD, only bigger and made of plastic) and was enthralled by the song Thunderchild. On going to the careers office and seeing a model of the York in a display cabinet equated her with that song.
In one's own minds eye, the York was my Thunderchild.

Funny old world..

Flymo she was a Dragon hence the name of the T45 who will take over as the affiliated ship for the city of York, With just a few exceptions we flicked the swithches and the missiles flew at mach 2.5 out to 30 miles plus, I have to say after many a night ashore staggering back to see her floodlit missiles on the launcher I was proud to think I fought her and used her or she tolerated me and allowed me to dispense her fcuking awesome power. 42 a true Greyhound and she still made me feel in awe even though she was an old lady
