Matchbox Flower corvette transfers
« on: November 02, 2006, 07:33:36 PM »

I'm finishing by Bluebell after a short  break of about 15 years. During that time the transfers seem to have disappeared.
Does anyone who made one of the other versions have a spare set for the Blubell?
If so let me know how much.  ;D
Thanks Frank

Frank....

The Flower K166 Pennant that Richard has just offered could just as well be K16 (Geranium) or K66 (Begonia) of course - it just adds to the possible options...  ;)

K66 Begonia was transferred to the USN as Impulse.... I keep reminding myself to find out what happened to the K66 Pennant after that - bet Richard could find out....!  ;D

Cheers, mate, but I always meant to find out what did they actually do with the K66 Pennant number while she's off serving with the Yanks? Is it given to another vessel then or not i.e. is it de-commissioned or what (so does the K66 Pennant Number become 'spare' then or is its still possibly on the lists officially as K66 Begonia?) - do we know??  ;)

Ta, Brian

DickieD, your surname wouldn't be 'Bates' by any chance?
