Saved from the breakers yard in 1979 she eventually left London for her home port of Dundee in 1986. I was studying in London then and on that very day (Friday 28th March 1986 - not that I remember every detail or anything) I was racing through Central London to get to Tower Bridge in time to she her leave. But I was late and all I saw was her stern disappearing round a bend in the river. I tried to follow on a London bus but ended up marooned somewhere in Dagenham several hours later.
But now I've finally seen her so all is well.
