Last surviving British casualty from the Falklands War, the Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship Sir Tristram sails into Portsmouth Harbour for the last time today Friday 16th December, 2005 at the end of a career spanning four decades. Sir Tristram's superstructure was badly damaged when the ship was bombed at Fitzroy during the Falklands War in 1982 and although initially abandoned, she was later used as emergency accommodation before being sea-lifted back to the UK. She will be replaced by the modern, highly sophisticated and more capable Bay class Landing Ship Dock Auxiliary. PA Photo: Chris Ison.
