|Seen entering Gibraltar 12/03/08 for what is said to be the last time as she and her sister ship HMS Southampton are reported to be both entering "Extended Readiness" in yet another cost cutting exercise. This reduces our destroyer fleet to just six units and thus will enable the UK Government to replace the Type-42's with the new shiny Type-45's on a one for one basis as was promised many moons ago!!! Lets hope I am proved wrong!!!!
