Hi Guys

Be nice if this thread could run on for a while - even if only occasionally.

Thanks - but I sort of also meant Liverpools Docks in general.

Although expensive to run, the 2 "new" Forts are (were) very capable ships. It seems to be another act of madness to withdraw one of the only 2 main fleet replenishment ships before replacements come on stream. I may well be wrong, but I believe the RFA is now reduced to about 11 ships. A far cry from even the 1990s.BY.
