Royal Fleet auxilliary vessels on the Mersey

After a "lengthy" refit in Cammel Lairds RFA Tidespring emerged from the yard a few days ago and now sits berthed on the CLT at Liverpool pierhead, The remaining vessels of the "Birkenhead navy" still reside in the West Float dock, Birkenhead, RFA Fort Austin and RFA Fort Rosalie. RFA Fort Victoria remains at Cammel Lairds but has moved from dry dock to the wet basin which may indicate she will be leaving soon to start supporting the new QE class carriers for which she has undergone substantial upgrades.
