Met Office ocean weather ship (OWS). This is the OWS Weather Surveyor, an ocean weather ship operated by the Met Office, the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service. It was originally launched in 1943 as HMS Rushden Castle, a Royal Navy Castle-class corvette. It was converted to meteorological service in 1961 (when it was renamed OWS Weather Surveyor), became a salvage ship in 1977, and was scrapped in 1983. It was one of four Castle corvettes that replaced an earlier weather ship fleet of four Flower corvettes. These weather ships monitored and recorded weather in the North Atlantic.
