HMS Montrose Honours the Duke of Edinburgh

When we are next able to raise a glass and toast the Royal Family at one of our dinners it will be a very different and poignant moment as we remember The Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The Royal Navy and our affiliate HMS Montrose paid their respects yesterday, Saturday April 10th at noon, with the thunder of cannon which could be heard from Devonport to Duqm with a 41-Gun salute.

The Sailors don their antiflash gear and join the tribute.

The sailors on HMS Montrose did so from Oman as Commander Irving, Commanding Officer remarked, “It was a great privilege for my Ship’s Company to honour His Royal Highness The Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh by carrying out a 41-Gun Salute today.”

First Sea Lord, Admiral Tony Radakin made a fitting tribute on behalf of the Royal Navy, which can be read below.

Sincere Condolences to Her Majesty The Queen
