A farewell Visit

 

The Royal Navy Type 42 Destroyer HMS Manchester, which  is 28 years old, was  scheduled for decommission this year and is making a farewell visit to the region before she returns to Portsmouth for paying off. After that she may be sold off or sent for scrap.

 

In a couple of weeks time she will be followed by her sister ship HMS Liverpool.

Good shot Les, it gives a very good idea of the height of the Liver building. Let's hope this ship isn't broken up, the country could do with the money from it being sold.
Les Auld: It is in the lap of the gods Brian, thanks for the comment.
She looks well with the Liver building in the background
Les Auld: So she does Bill, thanks for the comment.
