Nice photoes Dan, just wonder if you have, by any chance photoes of old RN Leander, Whitby, Rothesay, Cat or Cathedral Class frigates. I would be most grateful if you can share them with us. Best regards. Hanef

Sorry Hanef, too young to remember the Cathedrals, Cats or Whitby but I do remember the Rothesays but no camera and I do have a small number of Leanders taken by myself although I would have to dig them out and scan them. I do have a couple of official MoD photos of Leanders in Gibraltar but again, I will have to dig them out and scan them.

Great photos Daniel.

Careful though - with all those ships in one post people might think we still have a Fleet.

Keep them coming.
