I understand why you pick HMS Leander but it would have been nice if this one had been nominated instead.

Yes she is a sexy mo fo, nice bow and bridge, but I am not hugely keen on the straight funnels so plumped for the Southamptons instead. Leander - with that one large funnel is just soooo cool

A sad end yes...but she is still with us, so that is something.

It also reminds us of the sacrifice of her valiant crew, God rest their souls.


So many famous names ended up being ripped to pieces in the breakers yard.

Also a very sad end.

But at least they live in our memories.



Except some ships that still lives in space.

In group A of Most Beautiful Pre-War Light Cruiser I decided to vote for Luigi di Savoia Duca degli Abruzzi. This is one of the toughest group so far but I do think this Italian Beauty deserves more votes than one.

I am beginning to wonder if you are some sort of evil genius when it comes to ships, Warspite. How is one supposed to pick just one ship of group A in the category "Most Beautiful Pre-War Light Cruiser". It is almost an impossible mission. Pure evil if you ask me!

Most Beautiful Old Girls Tarted Up For War

To be eligible for this category you must be an old WWI vintage capital ship that was essentially re-built during the inter-war years. We have just one group of three - the ship finishing bottom is eliminated and the top two go into the final.

Here we go -
