Its been a while ;-) so heres some naval content

A well overdue update to my little space on the web!

The River Mersey saw some foreign navy visitors recently. After the JointWarrior18 exercise finished in scotland the participating vessels dispersed and 3 arrived at Liverpool for some r+r!

Spanish navy frigate Álvaro de Bazán and the Canadian navy frigate HMCS St Johns arrived at the pierhead for a 24hr stay, followed a day later by a very unique/rare visitor in the shape of the Dutch submarine HNLMS Zeeleeuw, the sub stayed in Liverpool docks
