HMS Queen Elizabeth

The first block of the aircraft carrier to leave Govan was moved down river on the barge AMT Trader by three tugs,Ayton Cross,Anglegarth and Milford at the aft.

When she arrived at the tail of the bank [where I took the pictures from] the more powerful tugs Eraclea and Pembroke took her in tow for her journey to Rosyth dry dock.

This part of the carrier which weighs 8000 tons contains the accommodation area complete with two hundred showers,the whole section has been fully wired and fitted out.
