Looking resplendent riding high in No.5 Dock at Cammell Laird’s yard in Birkenhead, RFA Fort Victoria belies her 24 years of age.

And well she might for the supply ship has undergone a revamp costing just shy of £50m – the biggest revamp ever carried out by the world-famous yard on a Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessel.

The 31,000-tonne stores ship has gone through a ten-month overhaul on the Mersey – one of nine vessels in the 13-strong RFA flotilla to receive a revamp courtesy of Cammell Laird since 2008.
