A view of the Pom Pom armament before fitting - a very good imitation constructed by military apprentices at Bovingdon.

Looking splendid after her Hull paint job (May 2012), MGB 81 awaits the reinstating of her Hull pennant numbers.

A fairly recent shot of '81' off the I.O.W. (4th June 2015) on her way to France for the D-Day Remembrance celebrations.
Still going strong and now sporting a twin Oerlikon abaft the Bridge. - no mention of her being laid up just yet (fingers crossed!!)
