On 14th April 1953 HMS Conway was under tow from her normal mooring to Birkenhead up the Menai Strait/ the Swellies between the Welsh mainland and Anglesey. Close to a place called the Platters on the Caernarfon side of the strait she ran aground due to strong currents and could not be refloated. She caught fire 30th October 1956 during dismantling and burnt to the waterline. HMS Calypso. HMS Marlborough. HMS Cambridge(Gunnery School)

  7. It seems it didnt take that long.This excerpt from the book "Jack Tar";Life in Nelsons Navy mentions it was a few minutes. "The Drum and Fife Beat to Quarters,bulkheads were knocked away,the Guns released from their Confinement,the whole dread Paraphenalia of battle was produced,and after a few minutes of hurry and confusion,every man and boy was at his Post"
