Ex HMAS Sydney

I can confirm that the Ex HMAS Sydney is alongside at Henderson in WA, ready to be 'Recycled', after plans to sink her as a dive-wreck fell through. :(

Is this the shape of things to come ship breaking. The last vessels broken up in the west was 2 of the O boats back in the early to mid nineties.

She had a comparatively long career Glen for a Frigate.
As for the actual Recycling at Henderson in WA, at least it is work that will keep people employed here, and let's face it, 'Beggars can't be Choosers' :lol1:

With the completion of the Anzac Frigate upgrades and no new work on the horizon for some time to come I'm sure the workers will be grateful for the work.
