The bars near the dockyard were "interesting" last time one of these carriers came in about this time two years ago. First time I have ever seen armed MOD plod on the doors at Tiger Tiger!!

MOD plod used to be on the door of "Bar Me" in Guildhall walk every weekend night.

I know as I used to throw sailors direct in the back of the van.
We tried not to let their feet hit pavement

Always most fractious when both carriers were in dock, shame that's not going to be possible for till at least 2020.

Queen's Harbour Master - Local Notices To Mariners

LOCAL NOTICE TO MARINERS
No 39/11
VISIT OF A NUCLEAR POWERED VESSEL TO THE SOLENT 27 – 31 MAY 2011
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN by the Queen’s Harbour Master Portsmouth that between 27 and 31 May 2011 a nuclear powered military warship will conduct a formal visit to Portsmouth. During this period, the nuclear vessel will be anchored at “C Anchorage” in the Central Solent.

Mariners are advised that the nuclear vessel is deemed to be “a vessel constrained by her draught” as defined under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS Rule 3(f) and 18) and is to be considered a vessel which can safely navigate only within a narrow channel or fairway (COLREGS Rule 9) at all times when underway within the Dockyard Port of Portsmouth.

Mariners are further advised that LNTM 07/11 (Dormant Exclusion Zone for Underway Warships) will be activated for the entry and departure of the nuclear vessel. In summary all vessels except those involved in the escort are to remain 250 metres clear of the nuclear vessel whilst it is underway. VTS Southampton, acting with QHM’s authority, will direct commercial traffic to keep outside this zone. Warning broadcasts will be made on VHF Channels 11, 12 and 16 as appropriate and the escort vessels will show blue flashing lights.

Whilst at anchor there will be a 250 metre Exclusion Zone in place around the nuclear vessel, which will be enforced by Ministry of Defence Police. Only vessels authorised by QHM will be allowed to enter this zone.

For the duration of the visit, miscellaneous service craft will be berthed alongside the nuclear vessel and mariners passing C Anchorage should amend their passage plans to ensure they avoid the restricted area. Vessels navigating in the vicinity are to maintain a listening watch on VHF and are to be aware of the effects of their wake and are to reduce speed accordingly.

Eight mentions of this ship's power source in six paragraphs seems a little obsessive. Have the RN got reactor envy perhaps?
