I was a crew member on hms st david as a member of the royal navy reserve during1963/4 minesweeping exercises and a visit to emden (germany) up the river ems where we tied up in the middle of town in stone throwing distance from the nearest boozer its good to see the ship as it was then before the bridge was covered, it was a bit chilly at times and wet, wish I had some photos to share with you. gjd

H.M.S. CRICHTON (M-1124) later became ST.DAVID.

Rare color view dating back many years. Always a pleasure to see one of your surprises popping up here.

Superb clear photo.

The minesweeper is HMS Crichton, built by J.S. Doig, Grimsby and commissioned 23 April 1954. She was broken up in 1987.
