HMS Caroline

A wee dander with Janette and young Jude, around the Titanic Quarter in Belfast on a beautiful afternoon, on Thursday 21st October. I also had with me the Fujifilm X-t4! Permanently moored in the dock there is the old HMS Caroline. This iconic ship has been docked here for 90 years now, used as the training centre for the RNVR.

HMS Caroline

Caroline is the last survivor of the Battle of Jutland in 1916, the largest naval battle ever fought. Built in Birkenhead at Lairds shipyard in 1914, she is a C-Class light cruiser. After being decommissioned in 2011, the ship was restored, and opened as a museum in June 2016.

Caroline is moored in Victoria Channel, and just a short distance across the harbour, more modern vessels are working away, loading and discharging their cargo…

MV Argonaut

And there’s even fun for the kids!
