I have come across a couple of images of the the Brave class which claim to be of P1011( BRAVE BORDERER) &P1012 in close formation during trials.

Can anybody confirm the identities/name of the second craft and also an explanation for the difference in superstructure

Hi There, P1012 was HMS Brave Swordsman, sistership  to  HMS Brave Borderer, Sorry cannot help with superstructure differences, both boats retained superstructure as built until they de-commissioned they were ythen  used as range targets in Wales,  does anybody know present whereabouts of these vessels ??

Hello Pete,

I am told that both boats were bought after their RN Service by Mr Hayden Baily -  Brave Swordsman was first thought to be secure in a private museum but owing to the very poor condition of the Hull etc the owner decided to use them as part of a 'spares pool' for his Fast Yacht 'Brave Challenger' (ex Mercury), both vessels being 'broken' (by Messrs Pounds of Portsmouth, it is believed). The 'spares pool' also received parts from the purchase of the ex German/Hellenic Navy craft - "Strahl" and "Pfiel" (export Vosper 'Brave' and 'Ferocity' class).

Sadly the opportunity to preserve a truely unique and classic craft was lost.

Regards

Ted

Hi. the ID of the Brave class Patrol boats in the photo is:- Brave SWORDSMAN IS ON THE PORT  SIDE OF BRAVE BORDERER, the difference between the 2 craft is  in the Bridge shape which differ on both craft.

Regards

MIke Harrison.

          Hi All.

 I could be wrong but I have aquired a 1: 24 Percassa Which I am going to convert to Brave Borderer. So after doing some reserch into both boats I believe that the  boat on the starboard sode is a Percassa as built for the Danish Navy These boats had a wheel house built in front of and below the bridge also the exhausts were across the centre of the transom that is between the waterline and deck wheras the gas turbine braves  had the exhausts just below the deck.
