    I often see this mine sweeper out in the Solent on training runs. The diving crew of this vessel back in 1987, pulled over thirty bodies from the The Herald of Free Enterprise.

    That's an interesting list and I hope you will kindly keep it updated for dublin as the spring arrives. hope the bridge works on the quays near the customary mooring place for naval ships will not deter visits by vessels.

    FS Meuse had this Alouette III embarked when she visited Malta about a year ago. Wonder if she'll be bringing the Alouette to Dublin next week.

    Is it a coincidence that the French Navy supply ship Meuse is visiting Dublin same time as the Mowags and stores are being loaded on to another ship for Chad?

    Another French vessel - oceangoing tug Tenace - due in Dublin next week.

    Here is a very limited set I have, as shown below of the now disbanded Northern Ireland Squadron.

    The last three Hunt Class vessels (M29,M35,M32) were used to to interdict the movement by sea of illegal arms for paramilitaries and to provide other material support for anti-terrorist operations in Northern Ireland.

    The Squadron's HQ was at HMNB Clyde.

    I think so. If Meuse is the sister of Loire, then its just the semi-annual visit, often with the school in tow.

    LE Niamh is coming into Dublin too. Interesting to see that while the USS Nicholas is due to depart at 1000 on Monday 14th, Niamh and the Spanish and Portuguese frigates are all due to leave together at 1159 (on the dot!). I wonder will they go down the river in line - that would quite a sight. HMS Northumberland - a Type 23 frigate - stays on for another couple of days. (http://booking.dublinport.ie/dpcweb)

    Thank you.

    The Germans have 2 Frigates in Cork as of this afternoon, and they seemed to be open to public tours, but I only passed by so I cannot be sure. Impressive all the same
    What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.
