Edit: Tried uploading this, but looks like it's shrinking it down to 1600x1200 resolution (the original is 4032x3024)
Happy to email it to anyone who's interested, or if there's a better way to share it?

Hope everyone is well, all things considering.

After four years sitting on the hardstand (mostly because they couldn't crew her) HMAS Perth is finally back in the water after her AMCAP refit.

A reminder, if any was needed, on just how big the LHDs really are, with Canberra seen from the perspective of a Singaporean missile boat.

HMAS Supply had her first RAS with a Canberra class, and I'm pleased to see she was as dwarfed by Adelaide as Protector was by USS Long Beach.

Even from the top of the RAS gantries, the RAS hoses were horizontal across to Adelaide, just like Protector's would have been. I know, small things...
