Seaweed,Shiny Sheff may have been given stainless steel QD guardrails by the City of Sheffield, but the MOD at the time bought ALL other upperdeck fittings in an experiment to reduce UD corrosion, or so the dit on the T22 Sheff's notice board said. It was not taken into common practice as it was not as cost effective as first hoped and it added to top weight.
