    Saw her berthed at Greenwich a couple of years ago. Impressive sight.

    HMS Ocean, the "Flagship of the Royal Navy", is to be decommissioned after a multi-million pound refit.

    The Ministry of Defence (MoD) confirmed the move would happen in 2018, when HMS Ocean will have "reached the end of her life", despite no mention of it in Monday's Strategic Defence and Security Review.

    The Devonport-based helicopter carrier and assault ship, which is Britain's biggest warship, underwent a £65m upgrade in 2014.

    Another casualty of the ridiculous, bloated Supercarrier vanity project.

    Why use a cheap, inexpensive, effective ship like Ocean when you can roll in a hideously expensive Supercarrier.
