Amphibious vehicles on Greenland Dock

Not a sight you see everyday! Bright yellow amphibious vehicles were launched this morning at the Watersports centre on Greenland Dock. I have no idea what they're doing here but they looked rather good, if a little surrealistic, moored up against the pontoons in the November sun.  Unfortunately, shooting into the bright sun from my bedroom window didn't actually get the best photograph of them possible, but it was too good a sight not to share.

Most likely an exercise to consider the safety of them post this event http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-24328708

That was the consensus at my local pub this afternoon too. Apparently there are various fire safety activities, including Fire Brigade training, that take place at the watersports centre, and with their beach it would be easy enough for the vehicles to get into and out of the water.
