    HMS Cardiff - Type 42 destroyer (briefly)
    HMS Newcastle - Type 42 destroyer - back to back S. Atlantic deployments ‘82 & ‘83 - first circumnavigation of South Georgia. Possibly deployed with you/Southampton one of those years?
    HMS Redpole - N. Ireland patrol boat

    Not included various seaboats including Whaler, Pacific 22, Gemini and Searider as well as various sailing dinghies (Bosuns, GP14, Scorpion) and Morocco/Spain on an unknown make Yacht from the RN sailing centre in Gib.
