The Sir Galahad, a ship whose name is associated with one of the darkest days in recent British military history, is making her final visit to Wales.

Her predecessor was bombed during the Falklands War in 1982 with the loss of 48 lives, many of them Welsh Guards.
The replacement Sir Galahad is at Pembroke Dock over the weekend to say goodbye to veterans of the conflict.
The captain and crew will also take part in a naming ceremony for Tenby's new RNLI boathouse, called Sir Galahad.
The vessel, which has retained close ties with Wales through the war veterans' assocation, the Welsh South Atlantic Medal Association (SAMA), is due to retire in August.
The original Sir Galahad was towed out to sea and sunk as a war grave after the attack in the Falklands on 8 June 1982, at the height of the British operation to recover the islands from their Argentine invaders.
Among the survivors was Welsh Guardsman Simon Weston, who suffered horrific burns in the attack.
Members of the Welsh SAMA and the Falklands Families Association will be at Pembroke Dock to see off her replacement, Royal Fleet Auxiliary Sir Galahad.
She was launched in 1986, and is on a final tour of European ports, including Jersey and Den Helder in the Netherlands.
Captain Rob Dorey said: "It's a farewell visit to the south Wales region. Really the reason I wanted to do this is because the ship is going out of service in the summer.
"I was quite surprised with how strong the links are in this area - it's quite remarkable.
"There's a lot of links with the previous Sir Galahad and the South Atlantic Medals Association, so we felt it appropriate that we gave an opportunity for these organisations to say goodbye to the ship."
The current RFA Sir Galahad will be replaced by a "larger, faster and more versatile" vessel, said Capt Dorey.
The new ship will be called RFA Cardigan Bay and Capt Dorey hoped it could maintain strong links with Wales. The ship's first captain, Nigel Jones, is from Cardigan.
The RFA Sir Galahad will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.
The original ship was built in 1966 as a "landing ship logistical". Its role was to support amphibious operations by landing troops, tanks, vehicles and other heavy equipment in port or on any suitable beach.
