Hi Nick Weall Thanks very much for that. I was surprised myself it fitted, it never has before. I will return when the conditions are better and get a clearer photo from a tripod. Ciao Tone.

I show this photo my husband because he love also old ships. And he know, this sailer used for many history movies! Thats right? I can see many sailers in the habour. Have you often a parade ore is this the home habour for the old ships? Do you know that in Dresden is the oldest steamships from the whole world and in my hometown is the oldest Steam Train from Germany with the once central station what have a roof? This found you on my homepage/Album in Movies/Dippoldiswalde. Cheers Petra

Hi Petra Yes this is the most famous ship in the world It's HMS Victory flag ship of the Royal Navy at the Battle of Trafalgar and the ship where Lord Nelson was shot and died. It is the oldest commissioned war ship in the world. And is now in dry dock in Portsmouth Harbour. We also have two other famous ships Hms Warrior the first Iron war ship steam and sail driven. Also the Mary Rose. Merry Christmas Tone.
