    Dockyard numbers usually refer to the Project, rather than the ship.


    As the Dockyard in Rushbrooke was originally built in 1860 by John Wheeler, there would have been easily 900+ projects of different sizes undertaken by Verolme, the gap between the two can be explained by the Yard being very busy at the time of the almost concurrent building of Aoife and Aisling. Such work include the "extension" of the Bell Racer and St Killian 2, and Accomodation modules for offshore exploration platforms.

    The F/A 18 is an aircraft commonly seen on both Land and Aircraft Carriers. Canada and spain use it from Shore Bases(as do the USMC) while the US Navy operate it from Carriers.


    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

                    Missing Numbers

                    So does anyone have the answer to how the ships are numbered.

                    Corvettes : 01, 02, 03

                    Minesweepers: 10, 11, 12

                    Patrol vessels: 20, 21, 22, 23

                    Helicopter Patrol Vessel: 31

                    Coastal Patrol vessels: 41, 42

                    Patrol Vessels: 51 52

                    What happened to 00,30,40,50 ??
                    As always, too many christians and never enough lions.

                      By type

                      the zeros were the Corvettes,

                      the teens were bastardised versions of the UK penant number sysetm the UKRN use on the the Ton class sweepers , Cm Being Coastal mine seeper as we had used o1 o2 o3..we had to change penant numbers with the new class the PVs again wa new class had their own numbring system the HPv a new class knew numbers
                      the peacocks had their own system we adapted it.

                      the p50s were new class had had their own numbers quite simple realy.

                          Ferdia and setanta were auxiliaries and carried A15 and A 16
                          the clue being the 'A'

                          Murchu didn't have a pennant number and the MTB s were numbered as per purchased.

                                Voice pipes, where on one occasion after blowing into it the receiver put his ear to the tube only to be met with a 'fart' from above. Duty watch I'm led to believe.
