THIS is the moment 18,500 tonnes of battleship grey
Light Admiralty Grey, actually; to BS381 697 (Colours for Specific Purposes). "Battleship Grey" was BS381 632.

OK, I was momentarily bored.
There's two different greys on her. There is a big patch on the Stbd side which is considerably darker.

Could be a shadow? Or some dirt from an O/B discharge..?

No, it's a very large and regular patch in the shape of an inverted-T (FP3) just aft of where it says LIZ.

'feet dry' in the article. Is this a 21st century naval term?....or do ships now have feet?;-))
It's properly applied to aircraft crossing the coast as in 'feet wet' and 'feet dry' and is a standard report.
Many thanks NG...learnt something new, to me

Have to admit, thats a bloody good refit, last time I saw her in Pompey she had a flat top, was square at both ends and the superstructure was just on the one side :roll: mind you that was 1978 !!
