HMS Intrepid - It should never happen to a Lady.
Some of you may know that I served in the Royal Navy for sixteen years (1986-2002). So it was with great sadness that I found out that HMS Intrepid was being scrapped in Liverpool. Intrepid was my first ship. I went to sea on her as a stoker at the tender age of seventeen and I have many fond memories of my four years on her. She was an old steam ship - work hard - play hard. It's a shame to see her being torn apart. Pictures HERE.
