Ship No 533

Ship No 533

This was a small order from the Ministry of Defence (Navy) for rework and upgrading on a small Experimental Submarine Test Vessel.


The order was given to the yard at a time of great unrest in the shipyards of the U.K. The implications at the time were that more orders would be released from the government of the day. This was to prove yet another blatant lie, from a government that was hell bent on turning the British manufacturing industry into a mere side show and the way forward was in “Service industry” whatever that really meant.

The small submarine was in fact never fully completed in the Leith Shipyards of Robb Caledon.
