Britannia

The Britannia at anchor in Holyhead sometime in the 70's, the tug in the foreground is either the Carmel Head or the North Stack.

I'm surprised that the spelling mistake hasn't been picked up by someone!! The vessel depicted is the Royal Yacht BRITANNIA.

Thanks Jeff, it has now been edited accordingly. - Some might argue that she should be in Preserved Ships Gallery, but there is also a case for placing her in the Gallery that was her class at the time the picture was taken, and in 1970, she was an active member of Grey Funnel Line, so her place here seems suitable.

I always thought she was a T.H.V and was just crewed by the Royal Navy?

Nice shot, Andy, I've got one very like it.

I think she was here for the Silver Jubilee in '77.

Never, always a Royal Navy ship under the White Ensign.
