I took loads of photos of the aircraft carrier, HMS Illustrious (Lusty) passing through the Thames Barrier, on her way down to Greenwich, but here is a quick couple that looked “not bad” on quick glance.

I’ll fiddle with the rest later.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Hi Ian, do you know anyone who has tickets for the guided tour, please? My nipper is desperate to attend, but there was a snafu when we signed up earlier

  2. IanVisits says:

    Sorry – but as far as I am aware all the tickets were allocated already.

    Also, the deadline for guests to provide their details has passed, so I doubt security could clear anyone even if places were available.
