With an unusually large number of buoys aboard, the RMAS salvage and mooring ship SD-SALMOOR was noted passing upriver this afternoon, shortly after BRO DISTRIBUTOR (seen in the background) had arrived. SD-SALMOOR, more details of which can be found here, is still flying the defaced Blue Ensign of the Royal Maritime Auxiliary Service. She will exchange that for the Red Ensign on Tuesday 1 April, when her operation will transfer to Serco-Denholm on the commencement of the new support services contract to the Royal Navy.
