Thank you fot staying with me on the Navy ships. Only one more after this one.
HMS York is a batch III Type 42 destroyer of thr Royal Navy. Launched on the 20th June 1982 at Wallsend, Tyne and Wear and sponsored by Lady Gosling,HMS York was the last Type 42 built. The ships crest is the White Rose of York, and the "red cross with lions passant"funnel badge is derived from the coat of arms of the City of York.
In 2004 she was fitted wityh MOD 1 variant of the mark 8 4.5 inch guns.She and HMS Edinburgh are the only two Type 42s to be so fitted. York joined Glouceester in evacuating British citizens from Beirut in the 2006 Israel- Lebanon conflict making several trips in and out Lebanon, ferrying evacuees to Cyprus...........

Another well captured image of a Navy vessel. Enjoyed the write-up too. Have only been to Portsmouth once and was fascinated by the various ships in dock.
