Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessels in Birkenhead 11th August 2018 AKA "Birkenhead Navy"

RFA Fort Rosalie A385 and RFA Fort Austin A386 currently reside in West float dock at Birkenhead, Austin has been here since her refit/service at Cammel Lairds last year with Rosalie arriving this year for a supposed 2 year "layup". This author has "heard" that Austin might be "re-activated" at some point in 2018!!

RFA Fort Victoria A387 is in Cammel Lairds having had a major refit that includes a double hull modification to allow her to supply both fuel and dry stores/ammunition to the new QE class carriers

RFA Wave Knight A389 is also in Lairds for a regular service/refit and her sister vessel RFA Wave Ruler A390 is in Royal Seaforth dock in Liverpool for some reason!!
