HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH
The Captain and representatives of the ship’s company of HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH attended a reception at Merchants’ Hall on 29 September. This was held to mark the affiliation of the Merchant Company with the new flagship of the Royal Navy. The Master presented HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH with a Merchant Company coat of arms, wishing the Captain and ship’s company ‘fair winds and following seas’. Captain Pettit gave a fascinating talk on the construction, working and functions of the ship, then presented the Master with a plaque.
