HDML Medusa

Postby Pioneer » Mon Oct 25, 2010 8:40 am

On Trafalgar Day of this year (2010), the HDML 1387 Medusa was rededicated in Portsmouth Naval Base with the Princess Royal as guest of honour. The Medusa Trust was presented with new colours by the Princess with the craft being accepted as the first member of the UK National Historic Fleet and now has to fly this new flag.

Now that Medusa is operational, we are undertaking a few events and I would like to share them with you.

This week we ferried some of the Navy Board to Cowes for an event. The attached pictures shown us leaving the Royal Yacht Squadron Marina afterwards.
