    Default HMS Chiddingfold

    Royal Navy vessel suffers 100,000 of damage after docking accident

    A Royal Navy minesweeper has been damaged after it crashed while trying to dock at a naval base in Bahrian.

    HMS Chiddingfold was being docked by Lieutenant Commander Simon Reeves when it twice struck another warship causing damage to its plastic hull.

    The Hunt-class mine hunter suffered approximately 100,000 of damage and will take several months to repair.

    Could job he slammed it into reverse , I don't suppose it would have made any difference if he had gone full Astern to avoid the collision/crash.
    I know the forces are making cut backs but surely the cost of a pair of epaulettes would not break the bank.Epi.jpg
