The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Farewell HMS CHATHAM

HMS CHATHAM is shown in Plymouth Sound,heading to the Naval Base,and Decommissioning on 26 01 2011. Her Paying Off Pennant can be seen,but unfortunately got caught around the rear flagpole,so was not flying as it should have been.The three remaining Type 22 Frigates are all due for the same fate,very soon. I hope to get similar shots for the others as they are all based in Devonport.

Ed.: see picture #14868 also for this vessel
