Oct 2012: When I said hello again to an old friend HMS Belfast

I have been to HMS Belfast before, it is a very personal thing with me which I have written before here.

I was invited to a corporate dinner on the ship, so off I toddled off

it looks so so so beautiful, you need to be a special nutty sort to see feminine beauty in a ship..isn't she gorgeous?

can you imagine the whiplash of those 8 inch guns going off? firing at the oncoming destroyers?

On the way back, i saw this on the wall of a tube station…interesting thing which measures the movement of the walls, if the wall shifts, then those strings will break..fascinating
