H.M.S. Belfast is one of only three surviving bombardment vessels from D-Day.
During her 33 days in Normandy, H.M.S. Belfast fired over 4,000 6-inch shells
and 1,000 4-inch shells.
The guns aboard H.M.S. Belfast were so powerful that, during the D-Day bombardment, their vibrations cracked the crew's toilets.
The forward guns, of H.M.S. Belfast, had a range of 14 land miles and are currently trained, and elevated, on the M1 Gateway, Scratchwood Services, 12.5 miles from where she is now moored.
