Nice photo.
The sailing vessel is the PELICAN (I think, not sure now I've written it), I will check when I get home, I have a website about her which I will also post.

Thanks Bob! I've been trying to identify the third ship. I think its the ARROCHAR. She was a Armament carrier, taken on from the Army around 1988 where she was called ST GEORGE. She looks like she has been there a while, we walked out on Queens pier a few months back to visit HMS Portland and Arrochar is in a bit of a state.

Thanks, thought the "of London" was referring to her port of registry.
