Steady on Ballistic, you'll get me a bad reputation, is doesn't do to fraternise with the WE fags you know!
Yes, I'll agree, had some damn good call rounds on them, particularly the older ones. Coincidentally though, the most miserable/unsociable CPO's mess I've ever been in was also a 42 and that was only a couple of years ago. Shan't name names, maybe they just had an off day!!
"Navy News will also be marking the end of the 42s with a special supplement – probably our June or July edition. We’re looking for some of your favourite (clean, unclassified!) stories of experiences aboard and photographs.
If you’re interested in helping, email words/images to [email protected] or snail mail to Navy News, Leviathan Block, HMS Nelson, Portsmouth, PO1 3HH, and mark your submission ‘Farewell to the Type 42s’."
