    Floating prison HMP The Weare has left Portland en route to Nigeria. As an added treat there are some Mark 8 pics that will excite the old and bold knuckle draggers among you

    Then go to HMS Osprey/Portland Port album
     
  2. Good Pictures there. Brings back some memories. Whilst part of Naval Party 1242 in the F.I. in 1986 we were accomodated on it, I recall it was called 'Coastel 3' then and it's commercial name was ?Bibby Constellation? (correct me if I'm wrong).
    The 2/3 man ensuite cabins were a massive leap up from what I'd known on a Leander, there was a nice big bar, a gym on the top and a swimming pool below. Just a shame that we had to share it with the crabs and army :lol:
