HMS Tireless Nuclear Submarine in Southampton

HMS Tireless travelled through Southampton Water today for a 5 day official visit to Southampton.

The submarine is one  of six serving Trafalgar-class vessels.

HMS Tireless will be alongside Eastern Docks until Tuesday and will be hosting visitors from across the region.

Here she is below on a wonderful, but misty, day.

This is what she looked like on Ship Finder!

Maybe I am being dumb, but I cannot see any evidence of the sub in the screenshot for shipfinder.  Maybe thats the point?

Cant seem to find its exact location now

No me neither - I only saw it originally as I'd seen on VTS it was coming in.

(Thanks for sharing link to that - I'd never thought to do that!!)

I then saw the pilot and the tug with nothing between them in the Solent so jumped in may car!

Strangely the tug disappeared too and I hadn't made a note of which one it was.

Malcolm - Sorry that was me being daft showing the blank screen - I have see a German sub on Ship Finder but never a US or British one.
