Went down for a quick look at HMS Illustrious docked in Liverpool today which turned into several hours of watching the helicopter display, buildings, canal, ships on the river and other stuff.

One Response to HMS Illustrious in Liverpool

As a veteran from the previous Illustrious Carrier in 1948 I was thrilled to be invited to the ship Friday as one of the invited veterans. At the age of 80 years it could be my last trip aboard a ship and it brought back many memories. Unfortunately I didn,t meet any old shipmates, though there must be a few of them out there as I new many from the Liverpool area.
