    The ships, left to right. HMS Cleopatra. RFA Olynthus. HMS Victorious, RFA Reliant, HMS Leander. This year 1965 on passage to Singapore, I believe.

    Also, It was the Vics last sea going commission, In 66 she went into drydock in Portsmouth, where the fire in the CPOs Mess pantry eventually wrote the Mighty Ship off.

    Looked at the radar and jumped for Hermes.(Wrong) I'm sure Victorious was with us (Hermes) off Aden in 1967. Just checked and was with us in '67 so didn't disappear in '66.

    Ok hissingsid, the commission was from 65 to 67. my mistake it was 67 when she went into Portsmouth drydocks and was last seen there, so to speak. Both Vic and the Hermes had the 984 radar with the massive dustbin aerial.
