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.

Iranian barracks ship 'Michelangelo'

Imperial Iranian Navy's accommodation ship "Michelangelo" (built by Ansaldo S.p.A., Genoa) at Bandar Abbas in May 1978. She was completed in April 1965 as the 45,911 gross ton passenger ship "Michelangelo" for "Italia" Societa per Azione e Navigazione. She was bought by Iran in 1976 & converted for use as a barracks at the Bandar Abas Naval Base (apparently without change of name), and was scrapped in Pakistan in 1991.
