Lovely rendition of Mountbatten's command Ralph. They're showing 'In Which We Serve'' on BBC I-Player, which is based on the the experiences of Mountbatten and the Kelly.

Excellent model Ralph.
I read Mountbatten's account of Kelly's sinking by the German Luftwaffe. After the ship had sunk, a stoker bobbed up to the surface, looked at Mountbatten and said " Extraordinary how the scum floats to the surface, isn't it?" and promptly swam off!
