HMS Caroline Video

HMS Caroline, a decommissioned light cruiser moored in Alexandra Dock, Belfast, will open as a museum ship on the 1st June, 2016.

Caroline was built in 1914.

Here's a fascinating video taken about five years ago:-

Poignant that the opening is the centenary, to the day, of HMS Caroline's engagement in the Battle of Jutland.

I am more familiar with the more recent restoration of this vessel having done work on board her but I did learn some interesting information about her previous life and good to hear jolly old Campbell mentioned by one contributor. It made pleasant viewing imbibing a glass or two of Bushmills rather than the Navy's required rum ration . Bottoms up and down the hatch as we say in the old club.
