HMS Superb Back In The UK

HMS Superb (S 109) returned to Plymouth under her own power this week after suffering a submerged grounding in the Red Sea last month. She stopped at Souda Bay for temporary repairs on the way home, after originally pulling in Aqaba, Jordan to evaluate the damage; word on the street was that the bottom half of the sonar dome was ripped off, she was down about 2 feet in the bow, and had a 3 degree list to port as she pulled into Jordan. Looks like the temporary repairs did the job of getting her home.
