Title: NATO ships London visit
Post by: Robert J Smith on November 27, 2017, 03:14:27 pm
Replenishment ship FGS RHON due Tuesday 28th early morning for KGV dock followed later in the day by frigate HNOMS OTTO SVERDRUP for the West India Dock.

Part of SNMG1

I wonder if there's chance the other two are around?

The Spanish ship left the group during their Med transit and the Canadian ship is still operating in the Eastern Med.

Also seems Rhon is delayed or cancelled as she is still moored in Zeebrugge.

Thanks AJBC, I noticed the Rhon did not arrive this morning but I see the Portuguese NRP D Francisco De Almeida is inward off Southend at the moment with the Norwegian further up river which is good because I've not seen the Portuguese one :-)

Heard a rumour regarding sailing times..

One to sail on Sunday about midday and the other on Monday about 13.00, fits in with high tides.

Just a rumour

Huh.. almost a good rumour.
The NRP D Francisco De Almeida was showing on PLA departures as 12.15 today when I checked yesterday but that must have changed because she went at 23.45 last night  >:(

HNOMS OTTO SVERDRUP is shown as sailing tomorrow at 13.15.

Cant win them all

Seasons greetings
