World War One Battle of Jutland veteran light cruiser, the 3,700-ton HMS Caroline is  moved from its current location in Alexandra Dock to Harland and Wolff Heavy Industries’ Belfast Dock for a scheduled hull inspection and repair, Friday, October 28, 2016. Two tug boats towed the ship from its moorings to the Belfast Dock at the mouth of the harbour. This is her first docking for almost three decades and a maritime event to be matched only by her return journey anticipated to be before Christmas. -	HMS Caroline is now a proud monument to the 10,000 Irishmen who lost their lives at sea between 1914 and 1918. The £15m restoration project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund with support from Department for the Economy and Tourism Northern Ireland. Photo/Paul McErlane
