Spent 3 very happy years on Fearless from 92 - 95 and she was my first ship. I was gutted to see her getting towed out of Pompey dockyard in January. Although i would have liked to have seen her saved, she was done and it was time to go. I am glad that her funnel badge is being saved and as type42stocker said, does anyone know what museum it will be in? Hopefully the Maritime museum at Greenwich or Pompey dockyard and not some little out the way one.
I remember seeing an old Ton being towed out stern first from Pompey - such a sad site - all I could say was "poor old girl". There doesn't seem to be a fitting end to a fighting ship - museum ships seem dead to me, and going down fighting is really a failure of the mission.
They do some times - the problem with the Fearpid (L10.5) was she was toppers with asbestos among other things. I know this as I held the asbestos log when we paid her off. Happy days. Was on for the AER fire (although in the old cart at the time...) and was EOOW when we brought into Pompey for the final time. Nearly had an economiser fire when we were shutting down - she really didn't want to go.
