I saw this in the International Express last week. Largs Bay renamed HMS Clyde and now in the Falklands.

Well spotted! The Largs Bay is of course still busy in Haiti - http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/operations-and-support/royal-fleet-auxiliary/rfa-flotilla/bay-class-landing-ships/rfa-largs-bay/unit-diary/

The Express pic shows her complete with her 2008 patch in darker grey!

It's nice to see that the newspapers do 'in-depth' research (Jester)

The only item you should believe in a newspaper is the date, and you should check that against a diary.

I suppose they would be easily confused as Largs is a town on the Clyde estuary. 2 years ago I was in Largs when RFA Largs Bay paid a visit.
