A couple photographed last Thursday


Fast, sleek & part stealthy? No ID or markings whatsoever! SBS?




Full of stuff, going the other way...

Beautifully detailed pics Donald, the clarity is excellent - I especially like the what appears to be a smiley face on the (I assume) radar-ball halfway up the aerial-mast thingy, on the 1st pic:grin:

Can you confirm the ensign at the blunt end is a White Ensign?
... And what is the letter & number on the side at the pointy end :smile:

?5 Looks like 'L5' but that was a submarine & I don't think your vessel is a sub!

The insignia on the funnel is that of the Royal Marine Comandos. An Albatross above a Thompson .45 submachine gun, superimposed on an anchor.

The ship's number is 'L15' and it has a rather limp white ensign on it's 'blunt end' :grin:

This is Amphibious Assault Squadron badges worn by Royal Marines and Royal Navy attached ratings in 1 Assault group Royal Marines. It shows the same insignia.

Panoramio: open the image and a single click on the title box does the trick fot me...

My Panoramio images 14,400 views in the last 30 days. :smile:

Thanks Donald, that was soon after I got the Olympus Camedia, some time ago - It was it's 1st real outing and I went a bit mad with snapping everything/anything in sight :grin:

That's the only time I managed to fill the mem-card, although it was only a 512Mb XD-card, the camera wouldn't see anything bigger :sigh: Then again at only 3.2Mpxl, it still held just over 500 shots. The rest of the shots were family at Ma-in-Law's funeral, in Rotherham.
