Her name was Eilat, formerly HMS Zealous. My father was the manager for her conversion in Liverpool for the Israeli navy. She was sunk by the Egyptians in the 1967 war with a Styx missile. My father gave evidence to the court of enquiry, which came to Malta to hear his evidence in the Israeli embassy. All hush hush at the time, but of great interest to Nato as it was the first time a Russian missile had been seen in action!
