HMS Bulwark in London

Unlikely... are you not serving? If so you should be able to speak to a member of the Ship's Company and see if they'll host you on board.

If not, let me know how keen you are to visit (and why) - it was my last ship (left Apr 07) so know the right people on board... PM me with details.

By the way, I cannot find anything about her being in London. Do you know where/when she is there?!

:wink: :thumright:

I think after Jupiter pranged Tower Bridge it became unfashionable to bring big ships further up than Greenwich!
 
Greenwich, where we were a few weeks ago, sucking up so much crap that we had a double duty watch just to clean strainers etc.
 
ive allways wanted to go on a carrier or assult ship because ive only been on frigates and thats it lol and i really wanna join the navy. also my mum wants to see what the ships are like.

Chico: I knew everyone on board so I doubt you'd have enough time to pass on messages on my behalf... :wink:

But if you do get a chance to visit, then make sure you buy a packet of biscuits for whoever on board arranges it!! :thumright:
 
NNOOOO!!

Buy some nice ones from the M&S Simply Food shop thats right by the Cutty Sark!! That will go down a treat ;)

Favours for favours, innit? As you're not old enough to buy the lucky recipient a bottle of rum instead... :wink:

She's going to be moored at Greenwich on 12 November - I only know because GR and I have been invited to hear the FSL onboard, preceeded by a jolly on the boat collecting us, and hopefully followed a tour round the ship.

I'm hoping their hatches are wide enough to accomodate my girth and their ladders robust enough to withstand my weight! ^_^;

Any other RR'ers coming along?

Well my invitation deffo says the evening of 12 November. Perhaps we're leaving with her on her next trip: in which case the RN must be really desperate for matelots. Looks like I'll be used for sweeping the chimneys! I'm wide enough ;)

Wherever/whenever you go on board, I hope you both have a great time. It is a fascinating ship, and - despite being Plymouth based! - I rank it as one of my favourite drafts. The conditions and layout are a definite improvement on previous vessels; when you first walk onto the vehicle deck and look aft' towards the docking area is a definite "WOW!" moment.

If you're permitted to take photos, post your pics on RR.

:thumright:
