Royal Ensign

Caught a shot of the Royal Ensign blowing proudly in the wind alongside an unlikely neighbour.
The flag was flying from the "Surprise"of "Master and Commander" fame.
Off it's stern was moored a WW2 Soviet submarine flying the red flag and also the Berkely in the background(an American river paddle boat )flying the Stars and Stripes.

Right next to it was the Star Of India ( built in the Isle of Wight) with the crew unfurling the sails. (seems like a tough job to me) Imagine doing that underway!

cheers Dal
