Memories of the Royal Naval School, Malta, 1947 - 1978.


The Cruel Sea

Tug Roysterer with HMS Coreopsis (or RHS Kriezis) about to achieve fame playing the part of HMS Compass Rose. 1952.

Eventually one was located in Malta – the Coreopsis of the Flower Class – which had been loaned to the Greek navy and was now awaiting a tow back to England, and the breaker’s yard.
