Thanks John,
We used to see the RFA "Sirs" for army movements but no more. However local sources say this is the first
RFA tanker to call here since 1952! So I was lucky indeed!
regards
Derek

Thanks Marie-Anne,
You are right I don't take much naval stuff.
But I know how much interest there is in it.
So this one is for all the naval buffs!
I was certainly lucky with the sun.
The other two shots I got of her were dull.
regards
Derek

Thanks Ken,
RFA'S used to be common around here but can't
think when I saw the last one!
Very lucky to catch her too, nearly missed the opportunity.
regards
Derek
