Stern view of HMS MTB-263 (Motor Torpedo Boat, ex-USS PT-14). Ready for delivery to the Royal Navy, circa mid-1941. She’s been modified to Royal Navy specifications, including Type 21" Torpedo Tubes, a 20mm machine cannon and other changes.

The Royal Navy's first carrier strike group in decades assembles.

1 carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth II, 2 replenishment ships, Tideforce and Fort Victoria, 2 Type 45s AAW destroyers, Defender and Diamond, 2 Type 23 ASW frigates, Northumberland and Kent, a helping hand from a US Navy Burke, USS The Sullivans (AAW) and a Dutch frigate, HNLMS Evertsen (ASW) and an Astute class nuclear attack sub is in the vicinity but not seen. 15 x F35B strike fighters of the Fleet Air Arm and the USMC and a bunch of helicopters.

Two decades of work has gone into making this possible.

The RN holds an annual competition for the best photo of the year. Four of this year's entries are below. The best to me is the helicopter not a ship photo.
