HMS Somerset strengthens her links with London

The Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate HMS Somerset arrived in the Pool of London on Wednesday 15th March to berth alongside HMS Belfast for a four-day visit. Commissioned in 1996, this will be the first time HMS Somerset has visited the capital.
Although the frigate maintains strong ties with the Duchy of Cornwall and Somerset county, she is also affiliated with a Livery Company of the City of London, the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, and her visit was intended to strengthen this link. Joining HMS Somerset on her passage up the Thames was the Master of the Apothecaries, Professor Brian Livesley. During the visit, members of the ships company were welcomed to a special luncheon at Apothecaries Hall and to return their hospitality, HMS Somerset hosted the Society at a dinner onboard.
HMS Somerset also provided the venue for a luncheon hosted by the new First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, who took up his post in February. While onboard Admiral Band took the opportunity to present long service medals to four members of the ships company with a total of 75 years service between them.
Visiting HMS Somerset from much further afield was another affiliation, the Massachusetts-based historical group The Ships Company of HMS Somerset 1778. This society recreates sailors from the last HMS Somerset to serve in the Royal Navy during the American War of Independence. They got to know their modern day counter-parts on HMS Somerset and caught up on their historical roots at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich

EDITORS COMMENTS
HMS Somerset strengthens her links with London as she arrives in the Pool of London for a four-day visit. This is the first time the Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate has visited the capital since being commissioned in 1996. While maintaining strong ties with Duchy of Cornwall and Somerset county, HMS Somerset also has an affiliation with the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, a Livery Company of the City of London. During her visit, members of HMS Somerset were welcomed to a special luncheon at Apothecaries Hall, while in return, the ship hosted the Society at a dinner onboard. The Master of Apothecaries, Professor Brian Livesley joined HMS Somerset on her passage up the Thames to strengthen their link further. The frigate also provided a venue for a luncheon hosted by Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, who recently took up his post as First Sea Lord. During this event, Admiral Band presented long service medals to four members of HMS Somerset's crew who collectively have served for 75 years. Adding to its affiliations was another historical group called The Ships Company of HMS Somerset 1778 from Massachusetts. They got acquainted with their modern-day counterparts on board and explored their historical roots at Greenwich's National Maritime Museum. This print captures these significant moments during HMS Somerset's visit to London.
