HMS Severn, the navy ship that had a paint job, arrives on the Thames in Kent

Royal Navy vessel HMS Severn was seen passing Sheerness, Kent this afternoon (August 27). The patrol ship has received a blue and green "camouflage" paint scheme, the first ship to be painted this way since 1945. HMS Severn was actually decommissioned in 2017, but has been "bought back from the dead" and is headed for London for a recommissioning ceremony.
