HMS Illustrious River Thames Transit

Veteran destroyer HMS Edinburgh and giant helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious brought the capital to a halt as they glided down the River Thames.

HMS Illustrious took all of her 22,500 tonne bulk down the river and through the Thames Barrier enroute to her Greenwich moorings.

As well as HMS Edinburgh and a third ship -- HMS Blyth -- the Portsmouth-based ship will be in the Capital for six days of events commemorating the longest military campaign of the Second World War, the Battle of the Atlantic.

Thanks, Scouse.
