HMS INVINCIBLE (London visit 1990)
« on: April 20, 2012, 04:34:44 PM »
Does anyone remember the date that HMS Invincible arrived in London in 1990, June/July I believe. (Trying to date some photographs)

Any help appreciated

Why not take a look at my blog "SHIPS AND BOATS IN LONDON". It's my take on the river traffic in the City.

Thanks guys, I caught her coming in but for some reason, didn't date the photos  :(

Thought there would be more info of her visit on the web because of the problems with Greenpeace cutting across her bow in rib boats and obstructing her through the barrier but all I could find were references to questions asked in Parliament.

Regards

Bob
