One thing i've never done is been aboard a warship, until now that is. A walk along Blackwall and Poplar river basins in East London took an unexpected turn when i suddenly spotted a group of warships! It was the 5th Minesweeping Squadron of the German Navy no less, on a visit to London and they were allowing members of the public to have a look around one of the minesweepers, M1098 Siegberg, and the tender A512 Mosel.
You can see the photos i took here. I can cross off "go aboard an active warship" off my bucket list, if i had one that is.
