Thank you Hanef - it would have been a shame if your post had been lost to us. It is annecdotes such as yours that in my opinion represent amongst the most interesting posts to be found in the forum.

Great pictures Dan although is there any chance that with future sets we could have perhaps less of them but instead at a higher resolution??

It just allows for detail to be seen more easily especially with my eyes!

I'm getting a bit seasick looking at all these great photos of RN ships. as an
alternative I'm trying to remember the names of all the bars in Gib. When serving on URSA we refitted there for 3 months in 56 and spent many happy hours drinking there. The Trocadero I believe was one and possibly the Universal. The attached photo of the Spanish Dancers was taken I think in the Winter Gardens

Bonzo - Add the "Suizo" to your list.

Daniel - Great shots as always - appreciated by all and particularly by those of us who stopped off at, or were stationed on the Rock.

Is Rooke still in use, or is it another casualty of the cuts.

Hi All

The Arizona, up a side street and then up some stairs. Got a photo of me and Daisy Adams in there lurking about somewhere, and the Barnacle, near the cinema and down some stairs this time.

Thanks for your comments. Need to get sorted so I can upload more RN vists over the past 6 years.

Keith, HMS ROOKE ceasd to be the RN Hq in Gibraltar about 10 years ago. It became plain ROOKE SITE and currently houses the officers mess, police, education centre and support units (housing etc) for the MoD. By coincidence, the Secretary of State for Defence, Dr Liam Fox MP visited Gibraltar last weekend to sign the latest Lands Agreement with the Gibraltar Government and one of the areas signed over was ROOKE SITE. Once the local Government gets their hands on it (expected mid / end of next year) it will turn the area into a new school and the new site for the local broadcasting corporation. If anyone is interested and remembers these areas, the other areas signed over to the local Government in this latest agreement are all accommodation south of the Naval Base, ie Buena Vista, Europa Walks (including a new block built by the MoD back in 2004!!), Hospital Hill, Rooke Hse (formerly known as Mount Barbary) and currently Commander British Forces's home & Europa Pass Battery.
