Somewhere around the mid 1990s I received a letter from the Captain of this ship at the time it was approaching its maiden voyage. He was in charge of the RN acceptance crew and at that time I was curator of the York & Lancaster Regimental Museum in Rotherham. He was enquiringly into the history of his grandfather's WW1 service in this regiment and I was able to provide him with much detail. He was so pleased with the information that he invited me to come on a conducted tour of HMS Richmond. Sadly, I never took up the offer and I do not have a record of names and dates so the captains name I can not recall.
