Three of the five Mine Sweepers that went up at lunch time today. I never had time to wait for the last two as they were about twenty minutes behind.
I may be wrong but I reckon that there about eleven naval vessels in KGV just now. The four that went up last night, Five small ones today and two larger vessels just arriving around now. That must be the busiest KGV has been for a long time.

RFA ARGUS and USNS MEDGAR EVERS at anchor T.O.B.

USNS MEDGAR EVERS named after Medgar Wiley Evers an American civil rights activist from Mississippi who worked to overturn segregation at the University of Mississippi. He was murdered by a white suprematist and Klansman. (From Wikipedia)

A quick heads-up – tugs CMS WARRIOR and BRUISER already up at KGV Dock, with AYTON CROSS and SVITZER MILFORD just passing Renfrew/Yoker Ferry to join them.

No doubt the exodus will start soon, pity about the weather……..

Poor day weather wise, the crew of the grab dredger Admiral Day that sailed up the Clyde passed most of the sailings from Faslane and Glasgow ideal if you were aboard. :D
