See HMS Defender in Greenwich

Though tickets for a free tour are now sold out (and thanks to Ian your author has one already), one of the Royal Navy's state-of-the-art Type 45 destroyers is in Greenwich for the week, and still looks pretty impressive from the shore. HMS Defender returned from her first deployment to the Middle East at the end of last year, and is in spending a weekend in the capital as part of a Navy PR offensive which also sees Royal Navy sailors in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College to meet the public.

Meanwhile, HMS Middleton will be moored off Royal Naval Reserve Unit HMS President near Blackfriars. The above picture is of a similar trip by HMS Illustrious in 2009.
