Dennis, not sure if you were aware when you placed the previous post yesterday 14th December 2017, that was the day Quorn, together with sister Atherstone M38 paid off for the final time. Prematurely in this the year of the Royal Navy, so we were assured. Both without an invitation for the media to cover the event in Portsmouth.

That now leaves 6 of the original 13 still under the white ensign...
Ledbury M30 in service since 1981, now oldest sea going ship in RN, i believe.
Cattistock M31
Brocklesby M33
Middleton M34
Chiddingfold M37
Hurworth M39
Additionally, lead ship Brecon M29 is still floating about as a training hulk off the Tamar with 4 more serving Greece & Lithuania, 2 apiece.
As i understand no one has yet scrapped a 'plastic sweeper' so there may be salvation for Quorn & Atherstone, but don't hold your breath.
Thats all folks. Sean.
