Obviously, winner ;-)
I don't have an account on Flickr, so FYI, yes we say "UN bateau" or "UN navire", so most of the time it's a he instead of a she, but a frigate is "UNE frégate", so you may have used a 'she'...
Nice picture,

Thanks and thanks for the explanation. BTW we will be in France in July. Flying into Paris for a couple of days and then training down to Le Puy en Velay to walk the Robert Lois Stevenson Trail to Ales, before flying out of Nimes to London. Getting close and excited about our visit.

Wonderful program ! It might have been interesting to meet in person, but I will be on holidays with the family myself. Have a great journey, I'm sure you're going to love it.
Cheers,
M.

Flag Flying at Buckingham Palace - UK2016-11 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

2016 July - UK holiday - This flag was flying at Buckingham Palace, London on a “sunny” summers day in the UK. I haven’t been able to identify it so if anyone can help out, that would be appreciated.

If you're still interested, this is the standard of the Duke of Wellington.
Why it would fly over Buckingham that day is an interesting little mystery I'm not British enough to decipher.
Cheers,

Thank you. My searching was definitely heading in the wrong direction. Not helped by the photos being taken in 2016 and not geo-tagged. I also assumed it was flying at Buckingham Palace as the other photos at the time where from there. Maybe it was Hyde Park or nearby.

Anyway at least knowing it is the Duke of Wellington's standard is cool.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) flying over the Port Isaac RNLI lifeboat station.

Port Isaac is the location of the filming of the TV series, Doc Martin, hence the reason for our visit in July 2016.

Pacific Eden - 2016-04 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Built in 1993, the United Kingdom flagged, 55,877gt 219.21m P&O passenger ship, the PACIFIC EDEN [IMO 8919245 ] departing F Passenger Terminal berth at Fremantle Port May 17, 2016.

At this time the PACIFIC EDEN was currently sailing regularly out of Fremantle during the southern winter sailing season according to reports in the West Australian newspaper. However since the mining boom came off the boil by 2017 I don't think she has visited Fremantle again.
