Infographic: The Secrets Of HMS Belfast

Sunday marks the 75th anniversary of the launch of HMS Belfast, the light cruiser now permanently moored in the Thames as a museum ship. A weekend of activities is planned on board.

To celebrate, we took a closer look at some of the more peculiar features of the craft, from its little-known starring role in Return of the Jedi, to the fittings and fixtures that are seemingly tailor-made for mayoral buffoonery. In the fine tradition of infographics, observations may or may not be based on objective reality.
