Way to make a man feel old there Rob. I did much of the work on the PR side of her commissioning, plus on four more of the class.

20 years, where'd they go?

I second that Mike
I was involved in her first extended AMP just after I left the mob. Was also working on her the day Westralia caught fire. Stirling and all ships along side sent fire crews and equipment to the helo ground to be air lifted to Westralia. Tugs and TRV sailed to assist from the sea as she lost power and was drifting. Sad day
