HMS Argyll arrives in London

HMS Argyll arrives in London

HMS Argyll passed Wapping in the dark early hours of this morning and travelled under Tower Bridge before taking a temporary berth next to HMS Belfast.

Based in Plymouth and built in the late 1980′s, HMS Argyll is the longest-serving Type 23 frigate in the British Royal Navy.

Following an extensive £20 million refit during 2009 to 2010, HMS Argyll has emerged as one of the most up-to-date and capable frigates in the Fleet, with her structure preserved and weapons and sensors significantly enhanced.

The Type 23 Frigate arrived home last September at Plymouth Naval Base after completing a wide range of operations in the seas around Africa, the Falklands, the Eastern Pacific and the Caribbean.

HMS Argyll will stay in London until this Sunday 19th January, when the ship is scheduled to leave London and pass beneath Tower Bridge on the River Thames at 4.05pm and by Wapping shortly after – just as the sun sets.
