HMS Liverpool


The Royal Navy's HMS Liverpool visits her home port for the final time before being decommissioned. The Type-42 destroyer was built at Cammel Lairds in Birkenhead and started service in 1982. After paying off she will be sold to the highest bidder at auction, or so I believe.

It would be a great pity to see a craft so relatively new chopped up Les
Les Auld: I suppose it has been worked hard over the last few years but it is a shame to see her go, thanks for the comment Chris.
What a super image, Les. Love the muted tones contrasting with the vibrant sky. (:o)
Les Auld: Just a touch of Topaz Rosalyn, thanks for the comment.
Sad to see them go Les but you have capture her superbly against the colourful sky.
Les Auld: It is indeed Peter, thanks for the comment.
Great shots Les, are you thinking of putting a bid smile
Les Auld: I can just see it moored on the Leeds Liverpool Canal, thanks for the comment Brian.
Let's hope the highest bidder isn't Argentina
Les Auld: Probably not Bill, thanks for the comment.

It's almost surreal, Les!
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, appreciate the comment.
A wonderful perspective - the sky is gorgeous and the ship looks so massive!
Les Auld: She still is a fine ship Elizabeth, thanks for the comment.
