HMS Express

P163 HMS Express leaving Cardiff Bay - at the time this photo was taken(Nov 2009), she was the only Royal Navy surface ship with a black hull - a couple of months later, her hull was painted grey.

She is an Archer Class P2000-type patrol and training vessel. Assigned to the (Wales) University Roya

I believe her black hull was from her days spent with the Royal Naval Auxiliary Service before that service was disbanded whereupon she was transferred to the University RNR.

A nice little number for the RN i think. I can see at least 5 people manning it, i assume there are a few more down below or hidden from view?
