Anyone know what the military ship was parked off Kolymbari between the pennisula and the turned to stone monster island with the cave as a mouth opposite Plantintas , a few weeks back that stayed for a week or so? Just curious!

The large one (there were other ships parked in the bay) was a helicopter carrier. Don't know about the specifics though.

Sold at the knock down price of 84 million pounds to Brazil after a 65 million pound refit 4 years ago leaving the UK with no aircraft carrier for 2 years untill HMS Queen Elizabeth is operational in 2 years time and all our type 45 Destroyers in dock with ongoing engine problems Brittania rules the waves, but a least we can pass the 84 million pounds over to the European republic to build up the military forces for Juncker

You can get a bit of info re: HMS Ocean off the RN website and there are 150+ photos on this site
There's lots more info if you Google the ship's name.
