HMS Plymouth

While working at a company on Liverpool docks I spied this frigate F126 awaiting to be sent for scrapping. When getting home I googled it to find out it is HMS Plymouth.
HMS Plymouth as well has having a full and active service she was one of the first Royal Navy ships to arrive in the South Atlantic at the start of the Falklands war. Taking part in many operations during the conflict however the main point is its in HMS Plymouths wardroom that the Argentinean commander surrendered to the British forces.

This seems a shame to see a moment in British history to be left in this state going for scrap.
