I remember going down to redruth for a few days . Visiting the Hermione and doing a bit of maintenance on her. I went to tidworth down school. And lived on the barracks. We went out over the sea in a Wessex and sae concorde on its maiden flight. Excellent times!

I have read there have been 3 or 4 Hermiones. The one i went on was a leander class frigate. Unfortunately sold for scrap in 1997..

Old ships! I left her (F58, Capt F5) in Chatham in 1979 when she paid off into Exocet refit. I can't be sure but I think she was the last ship to be refitted in Chatham before pusser pulled out of the Medway.

I was one of the last to leave her in Chatham. The few of us that remained (around 20 or so, if I remember correctly) moved into Pembroke barracks while the dockies stripped the ship out. By the time we left she was just a shell!! :) I hadn't completed my sea-time so I had to stay in Pembroke whilst awaiting my through-draft to my next ship......
