HMS Bristol is correct. Only Type 82 - now used as a floating classroom.

 ::) I can claim no rum for this one James !! total fluke I have to admit, I heard about Walker from my father who talked about him after the war,held him high regard. I was reading about him,in Janes this afternoon (yes I still use the printed word) after reading up about your Hun aircraftcarrier!
I suppose I must just be naturally gifted !! or a lateral thinker?   alright just lucky !!!!!!

 :-[ Well as you ask James, No it isn't! As a skilled stoker I was required to navigate my way from bunk to boiler-room, and back again,sometimes even after tot time!!
 Thinking about it, this probably explains why we have spent so much time in the last couple of years wandering round the Yorks dales lost!!
Anyway, I shall continue to ponder this one, 78feet at sea level? wireless mast?   ::) I'm working on it !!!!
