An aerial view from later the same year, 1950, showing the "Passat" and "Pamir". I'm not too sure what the ships moored on the southern side of the dock are. They could be Royal Naval ships but the official line is that the Royal Auxiliary Fleet didn't arrive at the dock for laying up until September 1952. Has anyone any information or recollection of what, or why? The site of the old slipway may be seen in the River Ely and there is a clear indication of the timbers of the adjacent gridiron.  See further detailed accounts and photos of these windjammers in Volume 08.
