Just for the record....
... this weekend's visitor is the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Mounts Bay. Seen here moored at the Liverpool Cruise Liner Facility. You just have to take a picture!
The Mounts Bay is a bay Class Landing Ship Dock, one of four in the Bay Class of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and was launched from Govan Shipbuilders on the Clyde in 2004. She can carry up to 356 troops and a mix of vehicles including 32 Challenger tanks or 150 light trucks, She also carries three landing craft and can support a couple of Merlin or Chinook helicopters.
A few images ago I mentioned my picture All Aboard
had been short listed in the Mersey Ferry photo competition, I have just learnt that it was in the final three but did not quite make first unfortunately, Still I have the formal awards ceremony to look forward to next week and bing included in a spread in the local paper.
Looking forward ...
