I am well aware of where the scrapyards are, Handler. I just fail to see why you feel the need to refer to them as Shitehawks, implying that what they are doing is dishonest, disrespectful or doing something that was in some way inappropriate. As far as I can see, once the Ensign has been pulled down for the final time, the ship becomes a lump of metal with which the MOD can do whatever it wants. It is the crew and the ship's achivements that made it what it was.
