50015 Valiant Nameplate 11 July 1998

50015 was named Valiant on 24 April 1978, presumably after the then current nuclear powered submarine HMS Valiant, although in true Royal Navy tradition, the name had appeared on four previous ships (it was also allocated to another one which never actually got built). The nameplate is pictured at Bury, on the East Lancashire Railway, on 11 July 1998.
