    HMS Plymouth (F126), Birkenhead

    HMS Plymouth is a Rothesay class frigate, which served in the United Kingdom Royal Navy from 1959 to 1988

    Built at Devonport Dockyard, in her namesake city of Plymouth, and was launched by Viscountess Astor on 20 July 1959

    During her lifetime, Plymouth served in a variety of locations, including the Far East and Australia. She saw action in the Cod Wars between the United Kingdom and Iceland and also the Falklands War in 1982

    HMS Plymouth was decommissioned on the 28th April 1988, and was the last Type 12 in service

    After decommissioning, the Warship Preservation Trust acquired the ship for preservation

    In 1990 the ship was towed to Glasgow and placed on display at a berth on the River Clyde

    Subsequently she was relocated to Birkenhead for display alongside other ships and submarines

    On 6 February 2006, the Warship Preservation Trust closed, citing financial difficulties and, by default, is currently owned by the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company (MDHC) following the demise of the Trust

    A recent application was approved by Cornwall County Council in April, it will soon be moved to there, it's future is still uncertain
