Salutes For All

Not quite Greenwich – but Stephen’s snap of these splendid chaps and the fact that, apparently, “Every visitor on boarding receives a salute” was enough for me to want to include these pics of Columbia’s naval flagship ship A.R.C. Gloria, currently sashaying for tourists, Columbian ex-pats and bigwigs alike over at South Quay West India Docks and forgive them for not actually stopping at Greenwich.

From the BBC News Story yesterday, the Columbian population of London are crazy to see their ship in London (I particularly liked the bit where the crew stand on the rigging in yellow, red and blue jerseys) and it’s quite an eyeful for the rest of us too.

Sadly she’s only in town ’til Friday.
