The Duke seems to be of considerable power - at least, beautiful lines. Great shot.
Les Auld: One of the most powerful Louis, thanks for the comment.

A lovely picture of the Duke in action Les. This is one that has (so far) eluded me. I wobder how the footplate crews would mark this against a Britannia?
Les Auld: An interesting comparison Chris, I'm sure some have made it. Thanks for the comment.
