Narrow Seas 
Here's the last addition to the RN coastal forces which, as I realised today, is probably a good extra to add to the MTB's, ML's and MGB's. I need some sort of convoy defence for the Schnellboote to run in to, so a Hunt Class Type 1 escort seemed like a good idea. This one will be HMS Tynedale (L96) which was active in the Western Approaches in 1941-42 and took part in the escort part of the raid on St Nazaire. It will give me a chance to try a funky Western Approaches camouflage scheme too!
