Senior officers RN, Army, RAF & reserves, local dignitaries, veterans and friends attended St Annes Cathedral Belfast yesterday at 3 pm 31 March 2011 for a very moving service regards the laying up of HMS Caroline's standard ( white ensign).

A de Commissioning service of the WW1 cruiser took place earlier at 2pm onboard the ship when the ensign was lowered for the last time after 87 years in the service of the RNR Belfast.

During the service HMS Caroline's last CO Cdr ME Quinn requested the Dean of St Annes Cathedral the Rev Dr H McKelvey : "Very Rev Sir I ask you to to receive this Ensign of Her Majesty's Ship Caroline for safe keeping in the House of God until such time as it shall pass to dust like those whose courage and devotion are enshrined in its history".

A final resting place of HMS Caroline will happen in the near future when the MOD will accept bids for the WW1 ship. At present UK City Councils of Belfast, Portsmouth & RN museum are interested in buying the WW1 ship for museum and tourist purposes.
