While I was reading this story about the Archbishop of Atlanta’s new residence and wondering why the National Schismatic Reporter wasn’t paying any attention to it – they are usually all over this sort of thing – I spotted this very cool video on the sidebar of the news site.
This is about a WWII era British submarine, HMS Alliance. It is the only one of its kind remaining. It has been refurbished, brought back to its pristine character, and can be visited in Portsmouth, where you can also find HMS Victory and Mary Rose. If you haven’t been to the Historic Dockyard, you are in for a treat. The sub is part of the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, on the same side of the harbor as the Historic Dockyard, not too far a walk, judging from the map and my memory.
Here is a video:
The Brits do this sort of thing really well. Be sure to visit the Imperial War Museum and the War Rooms, both in London.
In other news, HMS Surprise is getting an overhaul.
