I suppose it was too good to last – after a few days of bright sunshine it’s back to grey skies to photograph a distinctly care-worn HMS Mersey entering the river for Whitehill Point this morning.

Doesn't look as though she has seen any paint since the last time you photographer her.

Indeed Dave – I suppose that after years of relentless reductions in defence expenditure even if they can afford the paint they don’t have sufficient time or matelots to apply it.
