I ordered this book with great expectations, but unfortunately, it didn't deliver. I served on the Type 81 Frigate, HMS Tartar between 82 and 84 and have since written my memoir "32 Years Man & Buoy". The two years I served on the 'RatRat' (Tartar backwards, for the uninitiated) were probably my happiest times and I looked to rekindle those memories through the pages of this book.
In my opinion, the book, would have benefited greatly from the inclusion of deck plans, more photographs of these great ships and also images of the ships crests. Whilst the book does document a long and varied career, the couple of years that shaped my life warranted a little over half a page.

This book is just a high-level summary of the service histroy of each ship. I was disappointed by the lack of general information about the Type 81 regarding its inception, development, technical detail and subsequent operation as a warship. Disappointingly, there are only a couple of ship pictures and no diagrams whatsoever of general layout etc.

I purchased this book because i served on HMS ZULU. This book is laid out like Patrick BONIFACE other books ie CATS and CATHEDRALS, I was disappointed that there was no pictures of HMS ZULU OR HMS GURKHA, If you are writing a book on a class of ship lets have pictures on each ship, That is my only drip about this book.
