Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

    "A submarine left rusting in docks has been towed away after eight years.

    HMS Onyx, an Oberon-class vessel which saw service in the Falklands War, was brought to Barrow in 2006 by businessman Joe Mullen as part of plans to use it as a museum.

    Mr Mullen paid £117,000 for the sub after an idea by the Barrow branch of the Submariners Association, led by Terry Spurling, that it could become an interactive centrepiece at a submarine heritage centre.

    Yesterday HMS Onyx was towed from Buccleuch Dock, in Barrow."

    A local gentleman, Bill Mutter, is trying to save the Onyx from being scrapped.

  3. It doesn't help that Ocelot is on display at Chatham, there's only so many O boats you can restore, despite their individual history.
