Topic: HMS Albion anyone?


I just wondered if any of you have heard about, or been aboard the British Royal Naval ship HMS Albion?

The reason why I'm wondering about this is that I'll probably stay aboard it during the excercise Joint Winter 04 here in Norway, as an Artillery Coordination Officer. (15-24 March).
I don't know much more about it other than what I have found on it's website.

It was a very nice little ship by the way, and the food and the mess "hall" was great as well..
Had a great time during my 1-2 weeks stay aboard.
