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.

RFA Tarbatness

RFA Tarbatness (A345) was a fleet stores ship of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. She was bought by the United States Military Sealift Command in 1982, as the US Navy urgently needed combat stores ships to support their carrier battlegroups in the Indian Ocean area during the Iranian hostage crisis. She was built by Swan Hunter and was launched and commissioned in 1967.
