Need a doorstop?

In which case, the Ministry of Defence's Disposal Agency site has a rather tempting lot - not one, but two anchors from RFA Sir Percivale.

And here one is, in all its glory:

Other bargains include a morse code unit which is 'unsued', apparently.

Not on ebay, alas. I expect it will go for scrap.

Hitch - I'd rather have a bit of a battleship, but in principle, yes.
