Isnt that Portsmouth Naval Base ???



I used to live in Gosport, just across the harbour, and used to see the warships berthed there all the time. I even saw the Task Force leave to recapture the Falklands and saw it return.

That looks like it, if you could mate could you manage to look around for Whale Island and then look for a large ship tyed alongside lots of smaller craft. The large craft should be "attached" to the keyside by 2 or 4 struts. The SCC would love a picture of it.

Pardon my ignorance, but the pic is hazy.... What ship is that? Is it a Type-42?

EDIT: Now I see it isn't....Is it a Leander?

I have a feeling he might be saying that Portsmouth Naval base is like Norfolk Naval base in the US as there are so many warships.

Thats what I think anyway !

Yeah it is, the ship is HMS Bristol, an old destroyer I think.
She still has navy onboard but its largely use by the cadets.

HMS BRISTOL




HMS Bristol


HMS Bristol is the latest in a succession of warships to be employed as the Royal Navy, Royal Naval Reserve, National Cadet Forces (NCF) and Youth Organisations Harbour Training and Accommodation Ship.

Permanently berthed at Whale Island, the Ship remains in commission, has an RN Commanding Officer and is administered as a Department of HMS Excellent.

With a small complement of serving and civilian personnel, Bristol operates for 50 weeks of the year providing a range of training and accommodation for a variety of personnel.

A Type 82 Destroyer of 7000 tons, and the seventh ship to bear the name, Bristol was laid down as the first of her class, designed to escort the replacement fixed-wing carriers (CVAS) planned in the 60's, she was the only one built after the carriers were cancelled. Commissioned in 1973, she was finally withdrawn from service in 1991 and configured for her current role in 1993.

Currently one third of her compartments are used for accommodation, providing 460 berths for the fourteen thousand young people who pass through her every year. For many the ship is their first experience of the RN, and provides a lasting impression, one that will shape the lives of some. Exchange programmes using Bristol have included cadets from Canada, Bermuda, Holland, Hong Kong, India, Malta, the Falklands, South Africa, and the USA.

The Military Training School uses Bristol for combat intruder training, slingers learn how to move around heavy machinery in the confines of her engine room. HMS Sultan and Dryad use her for health and safety courses, in addition Medical trainees, Divers and Chaplains gain from training in on and around HMS Bristol







So, it's a type 82......

You can see quite a few of the ships in those pics from her stern, her bow would give you a perfect image of them.
Last time we where there we seen the navy clearance divers clearing sea weed of her bottom, using explosives
, not such a nice experience when your bunk is under the water line..

No..a sea dog term would be "Tub" or "POS" something that involves atleast 14 swear words.

Ahhh...I see! I know what you mean about the swearing. My big bro was in the Navy, two of my uncles in the Army plus my dad and I have an uncle in the RAF. All of them swear as a matter of course.

Then again, so do I, but I am far to lazy to join up, unless the Yanks decide we need a "regime change"...
