Sceptre returns to service

HMS Sceptre, the oldest sea-going vessel still in service with the Royal Navy (though built in 1978 so its not exactly ancient) has returned to service following a refit or to be precise it's RAMP - Revalidation and Assisted Maintenance Period. The work will ensure Sceptre can safely operate for it's final couple of years of service. Weapons and electronic systems were also upgraded though the MOD press release doesn't say how exactly.
