Mumbai May 25 :- INS Krishna, one of Indian Navy’s 1st Training Squadron Ships, decommissioned at sunset 
On Thursday 24th of May by Rear Admiral Girish Luthra, the Flag Officer Commanding Western Fleet Command. 
The Decommissioning ceremony held at Naval Dockyard, Mumbai. 

Commissioned as HMS Andromeda in December 1968 in the Royal Navy, the ship was decommissioned from the British Navy in November 1994 before being commissioned into the Indian Navy on August 22, 1995 as a cadets training ship.

While it served the Royal Navy gloriously as HMS Andromeda and witnessed action several times, including the 1982 Falkland War, as INS Krishna, it has been the alma mater to more than 1,300 officers of the Indian Navy who gained their sea legs on board.

The ship clocked about 3,23,750 nautical miles in its voyages around the world as a cadets training ship and visited about 32 ports in 23 different countries.

It had a crew of 221 sailors and 18 officers and had capacity to train about 80 cadets.

It is very sad to know that INS Krishna is no more with us, at the same time it gives hit to my memory to recollect those days of 1995 when we start from UK to India under the command of Commander Rajiv Kapoor. It was my hope that although I am now Ex-PORC1, at list during de-commission ceremony,Navy will not forget to inform the commissioning crew as per the Naval tradition. Does the Navy has changed?

I was very interested to read this article. Could you possibly tell me where INS Krishna is now after decommissioning ? Has she been preserved, or scrapped? Kind Regards, Adrian
