ROYAL NAVY’S BIG SALE
The extent of the government’s plans for defence cut backs are emerging. As well as the Ark Royal it has now been revealed that the Royal Navy will also be selling either her sister ship, Illustrious or the helicopter carrier, Ocean. Also up for grabs are four frigates, Campbeltown, Chatham, Cornwall and Cumberland and five destroyers, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Gloucester, Manchester and York.
It is thought that potential customers will come from Chile and Bangladesh but there is also a chance of wealthy entrepreneurs taking a lead from the guys who are currently converting two Dutch Navy Frigates into super yachts. Also for sale are a minehunter and a Royal Fleet Auxiliary ‘Bay'-class landing ship that is less than five years old.
