Good afternoon everybody, I'ma lifelong coastal forces enthusiast, dad was in the RN in the Far East during WW2 so I was brought up on his tales of derring do (in carriers and minesweepers mainly). Got my taste for CF from building the old Airfix 73' Vosper Type 1. And now I'm the RN's subject matter expert on ship survivability so I can mix business with pleasure :)
I'm trying to find out a bit more about the trials of the Blacker Bombard spigot mortar that were carried out on MTB72 (one of the ex-Norwegian 60' boats I think). Entries in the Coastal Forces Periodical Review indicate that trials at sea were carried out and that it was used at least once operationally. Has anyone seen more detail on this, any photographs etc.?
Thanks for any help you can give me on this.
