HMS Ledbury


A Hunt Class Mines Counter Measures Vessel in Canning Half Tide Dock, Liverpool. I think they used to be called minesweepers, how times change.

The lines of the ship aren't what they used to be either, they used to have a very rakish appearance
Les Auld: Strictly functional these days Zed, thanks for the comment.

I preferred the simple term Minesweeper. Everything changes!
Les Auld: Not always for the better Chris, thanks for the comment.
Minesweeper is good enough for me too Les. Nice shot.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, at least it does say what it means, not quite sure what counter measures really does mean.
Great shot Les
Les Auld: Thanks Pamela, appreciate the comment.
Minesweeper is good enough for me as well Les. A great picture and it looks as though the docks behind are very old.
Les Auld: Mid nineteenth century Brian, now part of the Albert Dock complex and housing the Maritime Museum. Thanks for the comment.
