HMS Roughs

I recently met someone who I was told had been doing computer work at Sealand, a supposedly independent territory sitting off the Thames estuary. I confess I am rather less curious about the sovereignty of the wreck than I am about its history during the War. A chain of Maunsell sea forts built to protect the Thames and Humber estuaries found new life in pirate radio. I cannot imagine the remaining two would be comfortable to live on.
