Yes; so would I. Mostly built and supplied with a Russian influence, I believe? However; on a friendly mission and we have plenty of defences from the Napoleonic wars and WW1 and WW2 along the Thames and around the country that could be brought into action again if necessary - Joke. Although the guns might be a bit rusty.

This'll stop 'em! only needs a lick of paint and a drop of oil.:-)

A few gallons of WD-40 should do the trick!

A few gallons? And the rest!
What’s the gunpowder formula? Saltpeter, sulpher and charcoal? Need a few barrels full of it for that cannon. I recall my early experiments with it. I turned a nice brass cannon barrel on the lathe at school. Took it home mounted it on a block of wood, rammed it full of my newly manufactured black powder, tamped a ball bearing down the barrel, lit the fuse, stood at an unsafe distance and BANG!!! A b/great hole appeared in the ‘outhouse’ door, good job nobody was in it at the time. Further similar experiments at home were banned. That’s when I took up photography.

This is the Duke of Lancaster.....ended up at Mostyn, North Wales in 2004, unused ever since. It's been a cruise ship, a car ferry and laterly an amusement venue. It's a shame to see a ship like this. First photo is in 2009 and second in 2016.

Interesting! Thanks for showing. It is an abandoned ship nobody seems to know what to do with and falling into a worse state of decay by the day. Not sure how it got hauled to where it is now but unfortunately the scrap value is probably less than the labour cost of scraping it.

Sad ending to one of the last traditional steam ferry’s. Did a little research a while ago as I vaguely remember as a young child traveling from Fishguard to Rosslare in a boat where you drove into it from a side entry. Only remembered it vaguely as we traveled at night. I recall driving down a tunnel into the quayside then into the boat. Turns out it was the Lancaster’s sister ship, the duke of Rothesay, which had been converted a car ferry in the late sixties. Found some images here, it was exactly as I remember it!

Nice to see this. Almost like the sort of thing you see on old films of paddle steamers on the Mississippi. Just add a couple of paddle wheels and a steam organ. Sorry, just me really being a bit of a tw*t! Thanks.
