Recommended Posts

Pics from Chris D

HMS Wilton was an important if small ship for the Royal Navy and Mine countermeasure warfare. she was the first ship where the hull was built from Glass Reinforced Plastic GRP or better know as fibreglass. Also know as HMS Tupperware!

Thankfully this ship has been saved by the Essex Yacht club and has been refurbished into their club house at Leigh-On-Sea, credit to those guys for doing it.
