UK Navy Ship HMS Lancaster Arrives In Hamilton

June 7, 2013

The HMS Lancaster, a Type 23 frigate from the UK Royal Navy, arrived in Bermuda today [June 7].

The ship is berthed in Hamilton and the public will have the opportunity to see the upper deck of the HMS Lancaster on Saturday 8 June between 1pm – 6pm.

The crew will meet the Governor and attend the Bermuda Regiment Change of Command parade. 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 previously 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.

“After many months of preparation, the visit is a fantastic reward for my Ship’s Company and we are looking forward to strengthening our relationship with Bermuda and supporting the islanders in any way possible.”
