RFA FORT ROSALIE is seen leaving Devonport Dockyard on 31st March 2009 assisted by three Adept class tugs operated by Serco.

 

She was built as the RFA FORT GRANGE by Scott Lithgow on the Clyde completing in 1978. One of two Fort class stores ships, they have replenishment facilities for both ammunition and general naval and victualling stores. Both have extensive aviation facilities with a single spot flight deck and full size hangar. The roof of the hangar was also strengthened for use as an emergency landing spot which enables them to operate up to four Sea King helicopters.

 

She served in both the Falklands War and the 1st Gulf War. From 1997-2000 she served at Split as an accommodation and storage ship for food and ammunition for the British Forces operating in Croatia. I

 

n 2000 she was renamed FORT ROSALIE to avoid confusion with the newly commissioned RFA FORT GEORGE.
