    Unknown O class sub

    Paul Holman (ex AMS member) sent me these photographs he took of an unknown O class boat during the Falklands Isles conflict during the early '80s. Any ideas as which boat it may be?

    This coming Saturday is the Truculent service in Chaterham, if I can I will ask some of the lads, one of them may have an idea.

    HMS Onyx was (I think) the only O class to go to the Falklands and still holds the record for duration of patrol for a conventional sub.

    When last I heard she was still at Barrow to be sent for scrap.
