    Nice photo of Loch Fada. She was the first of class and the last Loch to serve in the RN. I was lucky to serve in her last commission and sailed her back to UK to go into reserve in 1967. She was brought out of reserve and used as a testbed for the Seawolf missile system. Unfortunately she broke her moorings one night in a storm and was so badly damaged that she had to be scrapped.
