Remains of HMS Goldfinch

Click to View shows HMS Goldfinch in happier times, before being wrecked on Start Point. The three pictures show the surviving wreckage.

Willie writes:
'[Top picture shows] the bow/forefoot of HMS Goldfinch on Start point in Sanday. It along with another bit would make excellent displays at Lyness.'

'[Middle picture features] another bit of HMS Goldfinch showing a porthole with the distinctive "eyebrow" over it.'

'[Bottom picture] shows the last bit worth saving.'
