Talking of Leanders as Wheelspanner was in 2006, on sticky. I was in Mumbai last year and saw three Leanders still in service, in the Indian Navy. They were in good condition and still under steam. It was good to see some old "targets" still in service. How do they keep them going?
Lots of TLC and not too much sea time.A bit like owning a classic car.Only go out in the fine weather and don't thrash the engine. :lol:
