Default Royal Navy 'Welcome Aboard' Booklets

Dear All, as you see i have found another stash of old stuff; this is a flyer for HMS Lynx dated 1969, dawn of a new era in many ways. I thought some of you would like to see what was new in those days. I note this was printed by HMSO, do they still do this?

Thanks Tim much apprecated.

I didnt realise she was your last ship Dave.

I always thought Lynx was a fine looking frigate. Although the Type 41 and 61 frigates were criticised at the time for their relatively low top speed [c25k max] the reliability afforded by their diesel engines stood them in good stead and is probably the main reason why a couple of them are still being used by the Bangladesh navy to this day - Lynx herself who I think is now called Abu Bakr and Jaguar - now Ali Haider.

Not bad for a 53 year old frigate eh!!

Thanks Terry ..... two nice shots for my album.

Yes I did know and pleased to hear the old cat is still running. Makes you think about the fate of the Ark Royal and others we dispose of willynilly in the interest of progress, new technology and cost cutting.

Tim - RN ships still sometimes produce a leaflet but it's not done by the HMSO anymore - think it's done in-house. I've also sent you a PM on this..

In the stern view of the first post, the aft turret is trained forward. Was this usual? I've never seen a picture of it before in this type of ship. In what circumstances would it be done?

Steve, I can't give you the answer to your question precisely, but I do note that the starboard side of the upperdeck is littered with pallets, some of which are being broken down in order to get the contents below decks.

That suggests to me, a recent RAS, there is a bod wearing a high-vis vest located forward of the 4.5" turret.

Perhaps the turret is trained fwd, that being the practice to provide better/optimum handling space.

I note also that the seaboat(?) is being prepared for lowering/slipping.

Little h

PS, this is the frigate from which I did a jackstay transfer across to the Nubian during a Biera patrol. The pics are in another thread somewhere.

On the starboard side of the guy with the Hi-viz gear, is the tripod, painted white, which held the major ras line to the frigate during the ras manoeuvres.

A strong point, if ever there was one.

Thanks both. Just blown the picture up and there is certainly a lot of activity taking place on that bit of deck (apart from the chap sitting on top of the turret). Steve

Tim,
A lot of these leaflets were specially printed for "Navy Days" and were handed out to vistors when they came aboard.

We have a large collection of these standard RN handouts in 'Explosion' the Museum of Naval Firepower and Naval Warfare. All ship's PROs had a stack, together with CO's photo, to hand out on open days, press conferences etc. Assume they are still produced for ship's PROs (unless locally produced onboard) but have not seen one recently.

Delboy, you're more than welcome to my 2 as well, send me a PM with your address and I'll send them on.

Why not start a new thread and post some of your collection on there, I'm sure the members would be interested in seeing them.


Regards
Alan

As other ship leaflets have been added, I've amended the title to reflect this.
