HMS Aeneas (P427) was a British Amphion-class submarine of the Royal Navy, built by Cammell Laird and launched on 9 October 1945.[1] It was named after the hero Aeneas from Greek mythology. Aeneas took part in the Coronation Review of the Fleet to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Aeneas played the part of the M1 submarine in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice. In 1972 Aeneas was hired by Vickers for use in what proved to be successful trials of the Submarine-Launched Airflight Missile (SLAM) system, an anti-aircraft system using a cluster of four Shorts Blowpipe missiles on an extendable mast, allowing attacks against low flying aircraft while the submarine was at periscope depth. Aeneas was broken up in 1974. Great original piece. No major damage, a few dints and marks commensurate with age.
