    Default HMS Pembroke

    What's HMS Pembroke up to? Has she lost something? She's been going round in circles in the Firth of Forth off Rosyth since 0600 and is still at it 14+ hours later.

    Was doing exactly the same thing all day on Tuesday. Don’t know if continued yesterday.

    The navy must have plenty of fuel to burn.

    I think I remember this episode, doesn't it end with Cmdr Povey's mother-in-law finally going home, and then Sub-Lt. Phillips crashes the ship?

    She's a minehunter. I don't know much about hunting mines, but it doesn't surprise me that practising it (or testing or trialling the equipment used for it) might involve a lot of going up and down over the same stretch of seabed.

    From the Horse's mouth: HMS Pembroke @hms_pembroke

    "Oct 7
    Today we start our engineering trials to ensure that everything works as it should after our refit. This is the view aft from the bridge during our full power trial. We may not be able to outrun an F-14, but we certainly feel the need for speed." By the way, they are in the wrong place for degaussing..........

    Looks and sounds like an Italian Tune Up to me.
