"In reply to the original question, the Portland Squadron (2nd TS) at one stage consisted of three Type 15 A/S Frigates, HMS Verulam, HMS Volage and HMS Virago. I was on HMS Undine Type 15, 6th Frigate Squadron. The others were Ulysses, Ursa,  Urania and Undaunted.  In later years the Portland ships were Type 14s eg HMS Hardy, Grafton, Russell, Duncan, Palliser. Ray McWilliams. Dont know why but my profile and avatar have disappeared again! Last edited by "

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, Vikki "
