    An interesting article with photos on the decaying 'X' craft that were used for target practice in the Forth.

    Fascinating article.

    My first thought is what a shame they are just rotting there. But on second thoughts there is at least one saved in good condition at the RNSM.(Another one at the Imperial War Museum?)

    Having just unloaded the car after the Haydock Park show (which was excellent - more later) I realise I have enough rotting submarine hulks of my own!
