Sir Percivale has arrived
On the 13th December the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Sir Percivale was towed into Liverpool by the tug Braveheart for breaking up. She is seen here in Canada Dry Dock ahead of the Grey Rover, both ships will end up on the pile of scrap metal behind them and probably then go onto be made into white goods in Turkey or China.
RFA Sir Percivale was a Round Table class Landing Ship Logistics and has a varied history, She was at the Falklands in 1982, the Gulf War in 1991 and has supported ground troops in the Balkans, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq. She was withdrawn when it was found that it would cost more to overhaul her than purchase new ships.
