Slideshow: Onboard The HMS Lancaster Ship

June 8, 2013

Making her first stop since leaving the UK, the Royal Navy’s HMS Lancaster is presently visiting Bermuda, and opened up her upper deck to members of the public this afternoon [June 8].

The ship forms part of the North Atlantic Patrol Taskforce which will provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief support to the British Overseas Territories and other islands during the Caribbean hurricane season.

The crew will meet the Governor and attend the Bermuda Regiment Change of Command parade taking place this evening. They will also undertake some joint training with elements of the Regiment and spend time with the Bermuda Police Service.

HMS Lancaster’s Commanding Officer, Commander Steve Moorhouse, said, “I am particularly pleased that the island of Bermuda is the first port of call on our deployment.

“The relationship between Bermuda and the Royal Navy goes back hundreds of years and it is appropriate that as we head towards the Caribbean we return to an island that has long been a welcoming home to many naval personnel.

    It was great to see that they were lettling people on board and giving a great tour of the ship. Enjoyed myself. Hopefully they could do this again sometime during the school year for a field trip with the kids.
