Not RN thats why !
Looks like a good turn out from the RFAA by the number of people stood on the flight deck though.

Was she the 1980s rebuild at Swans, so i guess only 22 years old?

Answering your question Geoff ......Galahad was launched in December of 1986 and came into service in November of 1987, so only 19 years old. A ship in good condition and no doubt will soon find a new owner.

mmmm could struggle, bit of a specialised ship, though one of the originals of the 1960s saw further service with a civil line, after running as substitute for St Helena, i'm sure someone will know the full story
