Re: Where was this photo taken.
The mid tyne ferries ceased business for good circa 1986,HMS Illustrious was commissioned in 1982 & HMS Ark Royal 1985,so this leads me to think it is HMS Ark Royal in the photograph.The vessel shown is nearing completion as she has her own handrail on show & the Captains launch is fitted to its davits.
