HMS Belfast

HMS Belfast

Belfast used to be moored off Priddy’s Hard in Gosport, prior to being scrapped (then she was saved). My mate Clive Broomfield and I, catching lugworms, rowed a boat around her, around 1970.

I get irritated when journos write the HMS so-and-so, which works for a US Navy ship, but not for one of Her Majesty’s Ships (the United States Ship xxx works, the Her Majesty’s Ship xxx does not).
