Pirate Invasion

July 31, 2016

As the Russian frigate  Shtandhart lay moored alongside the pier helping to raise funds for the Save Swanage Pier appeal the town was invaded by gangs of marauding pirates looking for contraband and treasure.

Fortunately the crew of the Shtandhart fought them off and the Pirates fled back to shore in disarray where the crew were able to escape.
