That famous Ton class aircraft carrier - HMS Ark Royalington

Ark Royalington

That reminds me of Rosyth in the early 80s when the MCM squadron there was located in temporary offices and has a name plate made 'HMS PORTAKABINTON'

I remember that sign. And HMS Portakabinton remained in commission until the very end and the base closed.

The Crazy 'Y' - HMS Yarmouth

from her time in the Falklands (i think)

From the cod war days I seem to remember something along the lines of “the Fuel mouth is Fowling. I was on the “road runner†at the time.

.....on drums, the Leander Class HMS Dildo.

Me thinks that when some get back off weekend leave we will have some choice comments to contend with. Anyway it was a bit lumpy up there at the time wasn’t it? :wink: :lol:
HMS Edinburgh - Fortress of the Sea (Currently serving on...)

This is due to Edinburgh Castle fending off God-knows how many assaults over the years. By that i mean the past obviously.

Anyone know the name for the Glouster???
