Final farewell (almost)

So today was the last flight of an operational Lynx in RN service and 815 Squadron did us proud.  A simple hangar ceremony, followed by a flying display then lots of booze and food.  Seemples, but spot on.  The only reason for the post title is that there will be a final evening hangar party next Thursday where 1300 people are due to attend.

Some photos:

HMS Goucester's Lynx, probably the most successfull Lynx ever after her performance in Gulf War One

We decided that this mark of Lynx was a Mark 3 (B) the B standing for Beer and yes it was a fully functioning bar with two working taps. Now why didn't we think of that before?
