HMS Ark Royal
Kevin and I enjoyed the privilege of a guided tour around the Royal Navy??s flagship, HMS Ark Royal in Portsmouth today. The visit came about thanks to the fact that Kevin used to teach the trumpet to the Captain??s son and it was a fascinating to see the inner workings of an aircraft carrier. We were taken all over the ship, seeing the main control rooms and meeting many of the people who keep it running smoothly. I was quite expecting to be told that photography wasn??t allowed but in the end we were allowed to take pictures everywhere except the Operations Room. I only took my little compact camera so some of the shots are quite noisy (light levels were pretty low everywhere) but I wanted to post a few here in any case to mark such an interesting day.
