Navy destroyer linked to Cardiff

#3
I was onboard HMS Cardiff (Type 42) for her first visit to the city of Cardiff in 1980. Great run ashore, great people and a great city. Even better now it's all been done up so I'm told!

Joined it there as a civie to carry out Phalanx sea trials. Unfortunately they were cancelled so I got returned to Bracknell and missed the run ashore.

I agree Cardif is a good run, or certainly was, I did the first SSN visit to Cardif back in the dark ages.
Was that Warspite back in the early 1970s?I was a small lad then queuing up on the dockside for a visit.

Great run Bristol, off the gangway, across the road and straight into the back door of the Pub. any time of the day, lots of good looking female students as well. Three A boats tied up right in the City centre, would it have been somewhere near a statue of Neptune Jesse?
