Guess the ship.

Easy thread, let's see how good your naval knowledge really is.  ;D



Both ships. Extra points for the name of the CO who received a posthumous VC.

Very cryptic to a relative newbie!

No points if you only supply a reference!

It's also got a yellow funnel which should be a clue.

This ship carried two names concurrently whilst in service.

What were the names, and more importantly, why did she carry two?

Correct on Phoebe, but no points for a job half done.

Well done Mike.

How about this one then?

Ship's name, location and circumstances gain the extra tot!
