Sad end for HMS Invincible

Postby BsHvyCgn9 » 18 Oct 2011 14:27

Found these pic's on the web of the scrapping of the once proud servant of the Royal navy HMS Invincible being torn up for scrap on a beach in Turkey. :( :(

Doesn't take them long to turn a once proud and good looing ship into a bunch of metal scraps. By now she is probably all gone.
