Whilst I fully understand, from first hand experience, the sentiment and feelings of those who served on ships on which lives were lost and indeed their loved ones, I do struggle to understand why there's been two Sheffield's and one Coventry since the Falklands but no Ardent, Antelope, Glamorgan, Atlantic Conveyor, Argonaut, etc.

Similarly, I doubt there's ever likely to be another General Belgrano, Tirpitz, Bismarck, Hood, Royal Oak, Barham or Titanic, so I'm not at all sure I follow the logic.

Then again I voted for Boaty McBoatface, so what do I know?

NS, I agree with your assessment, except you might be wrong about the Titanic.

Many years ago I grumbled to a member of the Ship Names Committee that after a promising start they had failed dismally to continue with the logic of the Isle of Wight Seaside Towns class single role minehunter .

"No, no, you don't understand....." he said.
