In April AB Duncan Fraser and Joey Hawke, who works for the fire service, will be taking on a mammoth charity challenge to raise money for two great charities, MIND and the Fire Fighters Charity. 

Their challenge is to climb the three highest peaks in the UK in full breathing apparatus. 

However they will also be cycling in between each peak. This will add 500 miles of cycling to their already tough challenge. And if that wasn't tough enough they plan to do it all in 6 days.

Please get behind their incredible endeavour as they push their bodies and minds to raise money for these important charities. You can follow them via Instagram at @tour_de_peaks where you can find the link to their Go Fund Me page.

“Falls of Clyde International” have announced a plan to return ex-HMS Ambuscade (PNS Tariq currently in service with🇵🇰 Pakistani Navy) to be museum ship at Maritime Heritage Centre on the Clyde.

HMS Ambuscade was constructed by Yarrow Shipbuilders at Scotstoun in Glasgow - the yard is now owned by BAE Systems and will used for the fitting out of the Type 26 frigates.

Ambuscade was one of 8 Type 21 frigates built for the RN in the 1970s. They were popular with crews but not the most effective fighting ships. She survived service during the Falklands War (Her sisters HMS Ardent and Antelope were sunk)

There is great affection for the Type 21s and we wish this project well. Even if you can obtain the vessel, get her home and find a good waterfront location, it has consistently proved difficult to preserve warships as visitor attractions on a sustained basis.

Brilliant value for money, considering the effects delivered - the additional operating costs of the #CSG21 deployment were about £73 million. (Not including the loss of F-35 jet)

Visited 42 nations and 3 territories, representing 47% of the world’s population and 53% of the UK’s trading partners. 18 set-piece naval and flying exercises were conducted involving 17 other nations.
