HMS Ark Royal - Final Visit to the Clyde

HMS Ark Royal - Royal Navy's Flagship made her final visit to the Clyde today.

She transited Loch Long and berthed at the Glen Mallon jetty where she will unload her ordnance before heading North on Wednesday.

A sad day indeed, and the weather today did not give her a calm welcome.

Many enthusiasts (like myself) gathered near Glen Mallon to record what is now a historic - though very sad - occasion.
