Mmmm, ships! What a smart looking square rigged 3 masted barque The Lord Nelson is--'Nellie' as she is known to her friends, or so I'm told!
The D98 is HMS York. I like her Mark 7 Lynx helicopter best--the tail is hinged so they can stow it in the hangar! lol. Amused me no end the first time I saw it.

Did it rain? ;)

Thanks Hazelnut!
I kept quiet about the HMS name in case some jobsworth thought a few pics (that anyone can take anytime) were some kind of security risk :)
Stranger things happen all the time in photog-world.

Yes, I too like a well hinged tail :)
