GIBRALTAR - 160112: Need I talk about the weather........? I tried to "capture" the ship as it came onto the Pilot station, but the rain and wind created quite a murky pea-souper. Still I managed to salvage a couple of pics. Thereafter I went on the Upper Rock, and again, the same conditions albeit it was somewhat brighter. Another soaking and a few more pics....hopefully she'll turn up again at the end of this deployment (circa August 2012), and who knows, another T45 may yet visit us.....keep hoping!

Daniel. Francis. Thanks for the photos. I was lucky to go onboard at Portsmouth Navy Days 2010.
Walked along main passageway from flight deck to a door near the VLS Missile silo.
Highlight was Operations room with banks of computers.
We were not allowed on the bridge. Which i see you got up there.
HMS Daring has three masts.
Foremast. Mainmast and Longrange radar mast.

GIBRALTAR - 170112: Another pic taken from the Upper Rock. Tuesday 17th January (beautiful day as opposed to the previous rainy peasouper!) was declared R&R for the mayority of the crew who I am sure enjoyed themselves prior to the start of the seven month deployment...

Thanks for all these great shots of Daring, Daniel and Francis.
The 3rd of the 6 Type 45's, Diamond, D34, is enroute to relieve 1st of class Daring in't Middle East.
She will no doubt stop at The Rock, having left Pompey 13th June 2012, yesterday.
Note Diamond, as Daring, has her 2 Phalanx fitted, P & S, unlike 2nd of class Dauntless, D33, which has deployed to the S Atlantic and Falkland duties without hers. That is rather perplexing in the circumstances.
