HMS Daring escorted us up to and through Suez last year. The navy liaison office on board the cruise ship (Arcadia ) told us Daring was using the opportunity to exercise as if she was escorting a Carrier.

The Atlantic Cartier was built in built in 1985 Phil,

The Atlantic Conveyor (built 1970) before she was sunk.
Atlantic Conveyor was a British merchant navy ship, registered in Liverpool, that was requisitioned during the Falklands War.
She was hit on 25 May 1982 by two Argentine air-launched AM39 Exocet missiles, killing 12 sailors. Atlantic Conveyor sank whilst under tow on 28 May 1982.

A few years back Vinny posted a superb photo of an ACL vessel approaching Liverpool .
It was that good I suggested he send it to ACL for their portfolio.
Anyone ever hear from Vinny ?

The coaster-dredger LUNESDALE on the River Mersey in 1965. The Lunesdale was one of several sand-dredgers operating in the estuary of the River Mersey. I think she was scrapped in 1968. :wink: :D
