On 4 August 1960 HMS Vanguard was towed from Portsmouth Harbour to the Breakersyard at Faslane in the Gareloch,Scotland, just a few miles from where she first set sail in 1946. Under the command of Lt. Cdr. W.G. Frampton were two officers and sixty ratings.She had been sold to the British Iron and Steel Corporation for £560,000.

 

A look back at halcyon days. Tip top old boy!

And why you post this in the "Gameplay" section?

Seems to be more offtopic.

Objection! Coming to late to the to even have a chance of making a difference; being useless and a burden on your side the entire time is what every BB player strives to be - can you think think of a better embodiment to that than Vanguard?:Smile_trollface:

Admiral William Halsey at the battle of Leyte Gulf, 200 or so miles out of position chasing CV, ignored pleas for help from 7th fleet then finally arrived where he was needed far too late to do anything.

 

And WG added him as a unique captain in the game.
