HMS Hermes sails

A view from the Admirals Bridge of the aircraft carrier HMS HERMES, with the ships company and aircraft lining her flight deck, as she sails out of Portsmouth for the South Atlantic - 5th April 1982.
Crowds can be seen lining the shore to watch the departure of the Ship.

Great and a unusual photo Tomvart. Plenty from the shore of the occasion but not onboard.

A pretty sombre moment for many of the lads I would think Jenxy, some quite nervous young sailors going to their first conflict!
