I was on her until Aug 71, then she went on a sales tour. I don't offhand recall when she was transferred to the US, but the lifeboats are missing and there is a helo control box above the hanger which again she didn't have when in RFA service.so this shot was taken after the transfer had taken place.

'Spica' pulled alongside us on 'Midway' many times in the 80s, as I recall. I must have unhooked hundreds of sling-loads from her helicopters...
