I went down to Portsmouth harbour this morning to greet HMS Ark Royal for the last time. There was meant to be a fly past by 4 GR4 Harriers. When I got down there however it was misty, a real pea souper. You couldn't see one side of the Harbour entrance to the other, that meant that the QHM was in "Fog" mode and thus all the shipping was being delayed.

So a bit of a missed opportunity I think

I'd still drill a couple of holes and make sure it has no rot....
