Prince of Wales

I'm just back from a very enjoyable day in Portsmouth seeing the new baby of the fleet, HMS Prince of Wales, make her first entry into Portsmouth ahead of her commissioning next month. It was a lovely day, made better by the presence of all the friendly and chatty ship enthusiasts on the Round Tower - I was first there at 0800, it was toppers by 1000, ship passed the tower at 1400, but the atmosphere and chat was great and the time flew by.

PoW has special meaning for me for a number of reasons, so I must admit there was a small tear in my eye as she came past :)
