The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

GOLD ROVER

RFA off Gourock on the Clyde in August 1987. In a Class of 5 she was completed in 1974 by Swan Hunter on Tyneside.
Most of these are decommissioned now but I'm sure she is still in service.

RFA Gold Rover is certainly still in service, i have seen her and Black Rover in Plymouth this year, and have several photos of her, taken over the last couple of years. I believe that these are the only survivors now.
