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.

TIGER in Reserve

She was placed in reserve in 1979 but was surveyed for reactivation for the 1982 Falklands Campaign but this was not carried out.
She lay in a dilapidated state at Portsmouth until 1986 when she was towed to Caslellon for scrapping arriving on 28th September.
This was taken in March 1985.

Very ungainly , that shed (hangar) , added later , could have been a second thought.
