More support for warship petition
quote:

A campaign to save a Falklands warship from the scrapyard and bring it to Plymouth has attracted more than 1,500 signatures on a government website.
Campaigners want to bring HMS Plymouth back to her namesake city for use as a visitor attraction.

But there have been problems finding a suitable berth for the vessel.

The campaign is also being supported by several senior navy officers who say the ship should be kept in the public eye for her service.

Comment: These people have a long tough road ahead of them with no assurance that they stand a ghost of a chance of pulling this off. I would hope that this story has a happy ending but the difficulties that museums have had in the U.K. doesn't inspire confidence.
