On Sunday Bev and I took to Liverpool to board the type 42 Destroyer, HMS Liverpool, one of two open days to the public, prior to her being scrapped in Portsmouth. This image is that of the stern flag and gun. The young lad is receiving some professional shooting practice, whilst his parents look on! We were both in awe of this great ship and left quite deflated for it's demise...a sad end to a career spanning 30 years. Thanks for my clicks and comments for my Cormorant, as ever, much appreciated.
