Default HMS Bristol at Portsmouth

HMS Bristol departing Portsmouth by Ivan Berryman
Released September 2012

The only Type 82 destroyer to be built for the Royal Navy, HMS Bristol (D23) was designed for a role that never materialised, the rest of her class being cancelled when the intended CVA-01 class of aircraft carriers that she was intended to escort and defend were themselves cancelled in the late 1960s. Bristol enjoyed a long and varied career however, her size making her a suitable flagship for Operation Ocean Safari 81 before going in for a refit and joining the Royal Navy Task Force in the South Atlantic during the Falklands Campaign. Paid off in 1991, she is now moored permanently at Whale Island, Portsmouth, as a training ship. HMS Bristol is depicted here slipping quietly out of Portsmouth Harbour in the 1970s.
