You know we have both HMS Danae and HMS Yarmouth hereabouts so considering that two of the most prolific 'posters' who keep it all going where both on the same ship (at different times luckily) why don't we have a section for HMS Scarborough? The only type 12 with a straight chimmbley!!!

We have a small section on the old Eagle (tho' I wasn't on there - luckily - but me docs say I was.......by the time I'd got back to Dryad the rest of the draft had left .........phew too close to the one of those mentioned above!) but nuffink on the old "Scabs" a fine old ship where she - the right squadron too - the dartmouth Training Squadron sometime know as the DTS.......and some of us have been upkeeping that tradition for a while - that of the DTS or Dinner Time Session :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I know you were Mick........perfect timeing as well, I never got to the EAGLE (but if my draft had gone tho' I would have been on there the same time as you and Harry.......that might have been er......fun......me being a baby sailor at the time.....se I'm not as old as some make me out to be!)

Also I left the Scarborough just BEFORE you joined her!

lucky on two counts!
