Lusty to be Retired in August

Recommended Posts

By happy chance I'd arranged a trip to the Mary Rose and RN Submarine museum yesterday so got to see the arrival:

Along with these couple I took plenty of detail shots that I'll sort out for the Walkarounds section - I did the same for her starboardside down in Plymouth last year so have the full set now. (My avatar is Lusty's white ensign from last year)

Hi Andrew,

Can I just say how nice your photos of Lusty are ? Its nice to see her last entry, she looks really good almost like she could continue in service for a number of years.

Great pics. Somewhere I have the equivalent from when Ark came in for the last time; a very different sight, as she loomed up in the early morning fog!

I am sorry to see them go, though I realise they're over 30 years old and their time has passed; it is simply that now there are no ships left in which I ever served, so I am officially on OId Git!

I couldn't make the trip for the Ark, but remember the weather- don't think I'd have seen her from where I was yesterday.

It is a bit scarey to remember seeing them when they were brand new
