Where is HMS Enterprise when Beirut desperately needs Royal Navy help. She has a captain --Cmd. Cecil Ladislaus --born in Gibraltar who would be ideal to help. Is she still in Limassol? It's all gone rather quiet.
Beirut is about 150 nautical miles from Limassol.
Has she arrived off Beirut? Does anyone know?

@fortgang , why don't you try a google search, or use AIS. She was in Limassol on the 1st of Aug.
Been there and done that. You're telling where HMS Enterprise was on the 1st august 2020
It is now the 8th august 2020 and, when I last looked she was languishing in Lmassol. Nice work if you can get it!
We assumed she would now be off Beirut. Something's gone wrong perhaps?
 
^HORLIX!!

Calm down and have a little patience, Chopper. Have you not seen this Official Release of 6 Aug 202??
(it was also reported by several News Agencies...) :


They are obviously making ready and expecting the Lebs/Brit Embassy to tell 'em exactly when their arrival will be needed.

<<... HMS Enterprise is currently docked in Limassol and will make her way to Lebanon in due course.

The UK is working with the Lebanese authorities to determine the optimum time for the ship’s deployment.

The UK Armed Forces is also deploying a small team to the UK Embassy in Beirut to help identify requirements and coordinate the package of wider support to the Lebanese Armed Forces. This includes the offer of tailored medical support, military air transport assistance and engineering and communications capabilities....>>


@fortgang - I don't know what your expectations are of this small survey vessel (Crewed with between 43 to 81 max* ) when they do get there but sources indicate their prime role will be to survey & investigate the best options for harbour clearance by others and thereby assist in creating safe navigational routes in/out & to/from suitable berths for the expected train of vessels likely to be bringing in much needed emergency supplies & aid. Owt else will be a bonus.

I know I'm telling you where she was last week, that's the last AIS update and as @BOOTWU has told you why she's still there your question has been answered

Lebanon navy with Italian help is quite capable of hydrographically clearing a safe passage for vessels into Beirut. Enterprise is needed for its medical and logistic help. A bit paltry I admit ,but if its the best MOD can do So be it. HMS Queen Elizabeth could well have provided comprehensive help. If only!

Look where QE is and what her programme is.
At the moment her flight deck is covered with tents and scaffold.
This can be seen from outside the dockyard.

Enterprise is still alongside in limassol
 
As his patience for an ETA Beirut drains away perhaps Norman's attention could be diverted to another long-running saga involving an earlier 'Enterprise', albeit a flying version.

Where? ... on her port side in a depth of 84 m (276 ft) on the seabed of the western approaches to the English Channel.

I remember this as a boy, everyone was following the radio updates all the time, strange how some things grip the public s attention.

Me too, I seem to remember it was on early TV and wasn't the skipper winched off with his dog by an early version of SAR?

Enterprise is still alongside in limassol
Enterprise is preparing "To boldly go" to Lebanon currently still alongside in Limassol as she appears to be having trouble with her survey motor boat. Spitfire. She is testing and calibrating it.

3 hours for Limassol to Beirut by ship? Must be a record
 
^Aye - Limassol to Beirut = Circa 135nm, at WIKI Speed of 15 knots (28 km/h; 17 mph) = 9 hours

... but at a more sedate 13.5 Knots her passage time would have been nearer ten hours.

(one could assume that Customs on arrival were dispensed with)


Never mind - At least there's one RR happy bear-rooting now that she's arrived safely, eh Norman ? :ROLLS EYES:

Dunno where she is now, but 4 years ago she was alongside in Corfu when I was there for a football tournament and I didn't even know that she was an RN ship! Saw her from a distance and could just about make out her pennant numbers, H88. Funny, I thought.....what sort of ship has H pennant numbers? "A" numbers were reserved for auxilliaries & survey ships when I was in the RN, I'd served on the Hecla (A133) so I was sure about that. Turns out that since I left the mob they've changed the colour of survey ships, and have allocated "H" (Hydrographic vessel) numbers. They're all grey now, due to some changes agreed in maritime law. Shows how out-of-date I've become!! :-(
Anyway, further into town I came across some of the ship's company in a (cough) bar (ahem) and got talking to them......good lads, a credit to the service. They'd visited the Commonwealth Graveyard at Corfu old town (which is more than I had done) and said it was quite moving. It'll be my first stop when I visit there again.
