Hi all, Swans bought this vessel as the British government was not allowed to export warships to Indonesia, so the way around it was for Swans to buy it. I was 1 of the Swans men to go to Portsmouth to bring her out of lay up and sail her back to Neptune for refit and teach the crew as how to run the vessel, she was renamed Kri Arun. We left after refit and went to Portland for work up with the Royal Navy, which turned out to be quite a bit of fun. Black outs and smoke bombs and all Indonesians running out of the engine room onto the main deck leaving the RN guys scratching their heads. Micky
