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.

detail photo of HMS TIGER

Originally BELLEROPHON she was launched at the John Brown yard at Clydebank in 1945. Construction was suspended until the 1950s and she was completed as TIGER in 1959. In 1968 she was converted to a helicopter cruiser and was easily identified by the large hangar aft.
This was taken at Greenock in July 1975 when she paid host to a local World Ship Society branch.
