UK: HMS Liverpool Departs Liverpool Cruise Terminal

 

The Liverpool Daily Post reported yesterday that the Royal Navy’s warship HMS Liverpool departed from the Liverpool Cruise Terminal.

Danielle Thomas’ rich soprano voice filled the air with You’ll Never Walk Alone and Land of Hope and Glory from the landing stage.

Five gun salutes were given as she passed the Pier Head again and finally Fort Perch Rock.

“We’ve had a wonderful time here for our five-day farewell visit. I can’t believe so many people are here to see us off. Even my boss was streaming by the sight,” Commander Williams said.

“The crew has had a fantastic time in the city and everyone has made us so welcome,” he added.

HMS Liverpool is a Type 42 destroyer of the Royal Navy. She was built by Cammell Laird in Birkenhead and launched on 25 September 1980 by Lady Strathcona, the wife of Euan Howard who was Minister of State for Defence back then. Liverpool is the last Batch 2 Type 42 in service.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
