    Very nice Bro Jeff, pray that Jim gets some good news this weekend, he's at MD Anderson, his bosses son Jonathon flew him down Friday and was flying down to pick him up this evening,,, his summer has been pretty grim, I sure don't want to lose my brother... you continue to remain an inspiration to the men of SDF on so many levels friend!

    indeed a lot of hard work went into building your fleet, nicely done!

    Latest pics of HMS Prince of Wales R09 as she makes final preparations to depart Rosyth in a few months for her sea trials. The ship's crest badge has been added to the aft island, but unlike her sister, it isn't the whole crest as the cross of St George could be mistaken for a red cross and that would contravene international law for Warships, so her badge is just the central element of the crest, the three feathers of the Prince's emblem: 67599211_10156222548061481_2239455918762754048_n.jpg 67402885_10156222548116481_6328072425854468096_n.jpg 67447474_10156222548196481_4821236914453479424_n.jpg The badge currently painted on the front of the ski jump will be painted out before she puts to sea for the reason outlined above. 42469771851_bc2626c920_k.jpg

    Just driving over the Queensferry crossing got my wife to take these snaps

    Sorry for the road cone :)

    Kind of hard to get a clear shot with the bridge wind breaks in the way

    And it was 27C in Scotland today

    That is considered a heat wave

    Is this a new bridge? I crossed there some years ago seeing QE2, but it seems to be an other bridge without wind breaks.

    Don't paint that out, fly your colors man, fly your colors! I'm a little sick of PC krap, and I understand that the Red Cross is a sign of friendship and good medicine, but isn't that what the Prince of Wales is all about??

    take your medicine!

    Alas it has already been removed...

    This weekend, all being well, I shall be taking part in a … well that would spoil the surprise. I've already told Popeye about it but the rest of you will have to wait! Let's just say I've had to supply the MOD(N) with my details for security purposes! Pics and full story next week!

    You have fun my friend, you've earned it, you've paid for it, and now I pray you get to enjoy the fruits of your labors! As well, I'm hoping to venture out to General Mitchell International Airport for a rendezvous with the F-35A Demo Team, there will no doubt be armed USAF security with M-4s and M-9s.

    I'm sincerely hoping to meet Capt Olssen.
