    To those interested in this S-Boot raid I have just watched a documentary By Plymouth university via a Zoom lecture. Apart from a couple of shots of them at sea and the narrator is on theS-130 there seems to be new evidence of the event.Very interesting.Within the next week it will be available on their website.
    If anyone is interested I will post details as and when

    Irony being the original was designed as a launch for a German business man who also happened to be Jewish.There was an original S130 I think, down in Devon being rebuilt don't know if it still is.

    Why should I or anyone I have nowt for sale its over a month appreciate it may be a problem to reinstate it .Nevertheless what a sloppy method to post individual items all over the place.I for one don't trawl through all the posts . There was a dedicated section before put it back as it was .I did not realise creating a post gave you the right to tell people what they may or may not complain about

    Went to Tobruk from Toulon on one and returned during mid 60's run by merchant navy and a lot of chinese depending which engineer was on we got to swim in the bow section. Not if the scots engineer was on as he had the hump due he got nowhere with his ''see you jimmy '' as we were all either Scots Greys or Black Watch. No tanks just soft skins and armoured cars plus our 2 choppers. Also used in Aden but that was a short trip up the coast that was everything and Carriers big flag waving exercise
