Brilliant! Last time I saw that it was on RFA Black Rover a few years ago...probably a newer sign I guess :D

Maybe not the exact same signs, but I spotted the School Crossing signs today on RFA Orangeleaf...no surprise there I suppose but nice to see they are still about! I'll try and post a picture soon!

Same sign was on Black Ranger nearly 50 years ago! Usually displayed on the tanker assigned to FOST duties.

I'm sure there is a logical explanation but does anybody know how with 2 Rovers still in service, the FOST duties have been taken on by Orangeleaf?

One ROVER is always down in the Falklands and the the GOLD has just undertaken a very long refit.
