HMS Duncan to help Liverpool celebrate Armed Forces Day

HMS Duncan has welcome members of the public onboard as it helped Liverpool celebrate Armed Forces Day. The Type 45 Destroyer was berthed alongside Liverpool Cruise Terminal, from 22 June 2016, until 27 June 2016. It was open to visitors on both Saturday and Sunday. During its visit it will also hosted students from Christ the King College, Academy of St Francis of Assisi, Priestly College.

1 of the sailors, Engineering Technician (Communications Information Systems) Amanda Davies, aged 23, from Huyton is a former Sea Cadet with Huyton with Roby Sea Cadets; TS Iron Duke. The former Knowsley Community College Roby Campus pupil was looking forward to showing current members and loved ones around HMS Duncan. She said:- "It was very a proud moment for me to show of the latest and best Type 45 Destroyer to friends and family in my home Town."

Members of the crew will attend the opening of Hugh Baird College's Port Academy in Bootle tomorrow and play golf at West Lancashire Golf Club, while the Commanding Officer Commander Charles Guy, will be among guests at the Arnold Palmer Cup opening ceremony and dinner at Formby Golf Club, that evening.

Commander Guy said:- "I am delighted to be able to bring the Navy's newest operational warship into Liverpool for Armed Forces Day 2016. I have 10 members of my ship's company that hail from Merseyside and even for the rest of us, a warship coming up the Mersey feels like something of a homecoming.  For the Battle of the Atlantic, Liverpool was on the front line and I will make sure I personally pay my respects at the statue of Captain Frederic 'Johnnie' Walker, RN at the Pier Head. On Saturday, Armed Forces Day, we will be representing the Royal Navy alongside at the Cruise Terminal. Members of the public will have the chance to come and see HMS Duncan and to meet some of my sailors in person."
