HMS York.


War Hero
I recall seeing a model of her in the careers office when I was trying to join up in early '82. Wow, a stretched T42 I thought. Looks good. Ended up on Illustrious and three T22s instead. Ho hum.


Cracking ship - and being from York made it all the more special for me, even though I only spent six months onboard. Probably the reason I joined, I remember when I was at school going to see the city parade and heading off to sign up the next week.


She has just sailed for the last time...................

I have just returned home after watching her lock out of King Gearge Dock in Hull for her final voyage back to Pompey. She looked as good as the day i joined her in 1987.......end of an era. It takes a lot to move me , but it got very smokey on that lockside tonight.
