HMS Victory ready for restoration - Defence - The News
Victory has been undergoing a rolling programme of restoration since 1926. Big And Expensive obviously see a profit in the work, but lets hope they don't see the akers until the end of the contract.
It would pay them to keep it sea worthy, the way the defence cuts are going, we'll have it out shooting at Mr Gaddafi.

At least there wouldn't be any friggin stokers.:laughing2:

It's an extremely competitive event, the Peregrine Trophy; I think that some 400 photographs were submitted this year and they were all very, very good.
