This time Bergen has been visited by the the Royal Navy, in this case nr. P282, better known as the "HMS Severn". According to the Royal Navy's home page:

She is the second of three River Class Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) to come into service, and along with sister ships, HM Ships Tyne and Mersey makes up the majority of the Fishery Protection Squadron of the Royal Navy.
In this case she is neither on a river nor on an ocean, but in a fjord.

It was good to see your picture of HMS SEVERN on the Web Site. Having served with the Royal Norwegian Navy MTB Flotilla some years ago and lived in Bergen for 2 years, is was fantastic to bring my Ship back and to re visit old friends and Fjords!

Best Wishes
