Ship Pics: HMS Ocean (L12)

Staff Writer Navy

HMS OCEAN has been rededicated by The Queen after a £65 million refit.

Her Majesty attended the service today in Plymouth today as the ship, the third to bear the name, prepares to re-enter service.

In honour of the Mighty O's rededication, here are some photographs of the 203-metre long platform helicopter assault ship when she was on the Thames in 2012 - the year in which she was a very visible sign of protection for London during the Olympics.
