a Colossus Class, it looks to be. Don't know which one, though. I'll look to see if I can find it.

Can anyone tell whose Naval jack is flying at the fantail?

edit---although now that I look at it, it could be a Majestic class, also. I am not too "swuft"* with RN ships.

I was referring to the first two, btw.

*Southern (US) pronunciation of "swift"

Dave, MAJESTIC had a large 'Y' on her flightdeck prior to being sold to Oz.

UPDATE: Just found another pic of ILLUSTRIOUS with a 'Y' on her stern so ignore my previous answer.

I would agree with the above and looking at the pictures they are passing out of Portsmouth Harbour with my favourite Pub in the background "The Still and West" which I still visit on my pilgrimages back to my hometown.
