Sorry mate the Yorkie got all the good trips, remember well having to do trials on D96 when York was getting all the news print and jollies as first of the Batch 3's.

Manchester was the first Batch 3.

Funny I am sure back in Sept 82 when I joined her in Barrow, the Manch was stretched therfore making her the first batch 3 regardless of what she was laid down as.
Still my memory is not what it was.
Not long left for the old girl now.
My son is due to join the Edinburgh next month after waisting 3 months on the Nottingham. I believe the Fortress of the sea will be the last one to decommish.

Not when I was on her either, once we got out of FSLs hands we pretty never much came back! Sea trials, BOST, JMC, Deployed (which got extended) back for Christmas, DCT, JMC, deployed again. Other than some main leave periods there was very little time in Pompey. All good fun!

According to the RN website MANC is a Batch 3. She is slightly different to the subsequent batch 3s and has some similarities to the Batch 2s.

York was the last of the 42s, laid down but made it into service ahead of Gloucester and Edinburgh.
