After some very useful information from David Bolton CPO (Ck) RFA Retd., I have hereby ensured that these ships are referred to as RFA ships, and not HMS or Fleet Auxiliaries. RFA is the preferred term for the RFA, whom this page celebrates. Click here for the official RFA site.Click here for David Bolton's RFA site. Click here for the graphical RFA site.
