For Sale - One Careful Owner

Discussion in 'Royal Navy' started by merchantman, Nov 24, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It's tragic seeing such a historic ship being sold for razor blades. I'd love to see a bit of lottery money being sunk (no pun intended) into a floating annex to the FAA museum a la USS Lexington.

  2. She's in a very poor state and is just a shell now.
  3. The description does illustrate what 'extended readiness' actually means which, remember, is what HMS QE is currently heading for from 2020.

  4. Worth about £1,200,000 if you weighed it in at your local scrappie.

    I am not sure about the 'Careful owner' bit - remember it has been driven by matelots!! :)
  6. Indeed, Auld Yin - and note the advert admits the gens and pumps are shagged...

    I wonder if the Golden Rivet has been salvaged?
  7. Ah, but there was a time....

    It was the sight of this that made me laugh my socks off:

  11. Could be used to invade Warrington
  12. Does that mean I don't have to pay my bulkhead light bill which I don't appear to have settled when I left her in 1991?
