Naval Training Ships
 

Denmark





In the following I will show pictures of the old  Greenland SKA survey boats  in their new role as SKB training boats.
Also I will show pictures of the sister ships that were not used in Greenland, - SKA 7 and SKA 8 -, which in their new role as training ships for the navy became SKB 3 "Gulspurven" and SKB 4 "Jernspurven".
Please take note of the colour change from the strong orange red used in Greenland to neutral navy gray.
All the following photos are taken in the port of Middelfart or just outside my back door in Lillebælt - -
