The starboard bridge wing LinkExternal link of the 'Puplinge' J3576 : The 'Puplinge' at Belfast as it moves towards the quayside at Belfast. A Belfast Harbour Pilot (in high visibility jacket) LinkExternal link is guiding the ship in and using the handheld walkie-talkie to communicate with the two tugboats assisting. The other individual is probably either the master of the ship or a senior officer.

At the time of writing, the recent BBC series 'Our Coast' is still available on iPlayer, the County Down episode at LinkExternal link beginning with a fascinating look at the work of the harbour pilots who guide ships into Belfast.
