WARSHIP VISIT: HMS Iron Duke visits Jersey

After returning from active service in the Persian Gulf and off Libya, Jersey’s warship, HMS Iron Duke, is visiting the island for the first time after being formally affiliated with the island at last year’s Jersey Boat Show.

The frigate will signal its arrival at 10:30 on Thursday 17th with a 15-gun salute and will then remain berthed at Elizabeth Harbour, St Helier, until Sunday and will be open to the public from 10:00 to 16:00 on Saturday.

Commander Nick Cooke-Priest said: “We regard this new affiliation as an important commitment to the people of the area and an ideal opportunity to raise awareness of the Royal Navy, its capabilities, commitments and responsibilities, and to show the community how we live and function at sea. I am certain this visit will herald the start of many such occasions in the future and I am looking forward to fostering what promises to be a very rewarding relationship between HMS Iron Duke and the people of Jersey.”
