All my friends that visited the ship wondered about their short lifespan. Shame, actually, they were beautiful and well armed.
I may post finished photos of Penelope, which I posted on the real ships Facebook. Leanderís were great looking ships, and many navies used them.
Hi Francine, would you believe I worked with a chap here in Australia who worked in the engineering section of BROADSWORD in the late '80s and he said they were pensioned off because they were "gas guzzling monsters". Hope that helps.
