Keep Caroline as a memorial

As someone who, as a very junior officer, lived aboard HMS Caroline during the Second World War when she was the base ship in Belfast, I suggest a campaign be set up to keep the ship as a memorial.

HMS Caroline became a feature in Belfast, where she is still berthed, from 1924. I trust she will remain an attraction in the city and a reminder of the many Royal Navy personnel who sailed out of Belfast for the Battle of the Atlantic and did not return.
