Even if they are only used to patrol our coast to deter or catch people smugglers some good will come of it .Why scrap something that still has a lot of active life left,like our ‘oldies’ I wouldn’t mind doing a bit of part time

We love scrapping ships when they have soon much more to give prime example lack of aircraft carrier at the minute why scrap it we need to take a look at other countries we sell our stuff to and see how long they keep it going for


Perhaps the Royal Navy could be funded like the RNLI , they seem to have plenty of brand new boats (that actually work). I’m sure somebody in government would see this as a great idea. Servicemen could have day jobs and be scrambled every time a Russian fishing boat appears off our shores


I can hear my Father and his Shipmates laughing all the way from Heaven. 90 day patrol, what would health and safety ? lol
