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.

Ships and Harbours
No: 16928   Contributor: Paul Strathdee   Year: 1997   Manufacturer: Swan Hunter, United Kingdom   Country: United Kingdom

Type 23 frigate on the Clyde at Renfrew in October 1997 escorting HMY BRITANNIA on her farewell tour round the UK prior to decommissioning.
Unlike most of the Type 23s which were Clyde built, RICHMOND was built by Swan Hunter at Wallsend being commissioned in 1996. As far as I know she is still a part of today's Navy.
