This is amazing ... they dont make warships like that anymore. The gun turret is as big as the pub!!! Also somebody cant drive straight!

Yep its real, she was on the way to be scrapped and broke loose from the tugs ... a bit like a final act of resistance. There is a massive photo of this in the Still and West pub.

HMS Vanguard and the Still & West

The picture is no longer on display at the "Still and West". The pub changed hands last year (2003) and sadly the departing landlord took the magnificent photograph with him.

If you have a few minutes to spare, look at.....

http://battleshiphmsvanguard.homeste...attleship.html

The site gives the exact details and explantion of the incident on the 4th of August 1960 when Vanguard almost ended up in the public bar.
