Whilst browsing Flickr I found this great set of images from John Oram of the Combat Support Boat

On a cold, sunny March afternoon, I chanced upon an Army Leyland DAF truck on the Lee on Solent slipway (below the Hovercraft Museum). A short wait revealed that it was waiting to recover a Combat Support Boat which had been exercising on the Solent. There was some difficulty with the grab on the launching and recovery trailer and it took several attempts to get the boat on to it. It was fascinating to watch the team of Royal Engineers at work and have an opportunity to see the equipment. The truck and trailer look impressive on the slipway.

Just a few from the set
