My old Dad was skipper of HMS Hardy in his youth, and in going through his stuff (went to the great bridge in the sky in 2003) I found this interesting document.

Perfect Christmas present for any fan of the class!

PM me and I'll post it to you.

Hi Johne - Portland Squadron?

On ‘UNWANTED’ F53 (Type 15 Capt F7 '63/64 ) and when in company/roughers we were fairly steady but those poor Type 14s were rolling about so much we could see their prop out of the water half of the time….

(Legend had it that they rolled so much that their stokers kept falling out of their funnels!)

Allegedly on “Home Sea Service†but went even as far afield as Gib & Malta and operated off Alexandria: Smelled it - but we didn’t get a run ashore there.

Not a dit

Probably 1966'ish

Have stood a watch in the boiler room of Russell, wearing oilskins
We had to wipe the crusted salt from the boiler panel gauges
(There was a split somewhere in the uptakes that allowed the oggin in)

We also lost the mast in roughers in the Irish Sea....Hermes was reported to have lost a boat or two in the same seas

I used to have dreams about capsizing after serving on that tumble washer
