    Default HMS Illustrious in Liverpool


    Tugs on station by the Gladstone Dock

    ropes attached

    Ready to turn

    Tug Sandon at the stern, just off the Waterloo wall

    Tug Barbados pulling the stern around

    Nearly there

    Just a bit more

    we have arrived

    Welcome again to Liverpool

    Finish with engines
    Then I rowed home in my canoe

    See what the seagulls are waiting for in the next pic

    Steady stream of crew up and down the gangway to empty their rubbish in skips on the quayside







    The tugs Donau and Sandon waiting to enter the Alfred Dock with the carrier and Legoland as a backdrop
