Happened at Aldborough seem to remember after getting the fall/launch rope from the carrage around the starboard prop , from what I was told the rope cutter on the shaft worked but by that time it was pushed broadside on ,,think happens about 1+ 100 launches well at least it won't happen with the new Shannon class .

Coxn orders crew forward to help lighten the stern
it was later used as a training example for Mersey class crew training ,
If the Cox shouts were doing an (Aldborough ) the crew now knows whats going to happen ,
did you also notice the auto lifejackets on some of the crew self inflating with the drenching causing extra problems ,, excellent piece of boat handling though ,,bet the props cleaned up well too .

Glad to see the third man picked up - not easy in those seas.
Just brings it home how unselfish and brave these guys (and girls) are for our benefit.
