    After anchoring near Ajax Bay, the Ship’s Company of HMS Richmond gathered on the flight deck to conduct a Remembrance Service.


    On giving a reading at the memorial service, Engineering Technician (Weapon Engineering) Scarlett Johnson said: “It was incredibly overwhelming and a great privilege to be able to honour our predecessors who sacrificed their lives during the War.”

    Members of the ship’s company proceeded ashore, visited and carried out minor maintenance on the memorial to HMS Ardent and HMS Antelope, both Type 21 frigates which were sunk during the conflict. Other members of the Ship’s Company went ashore to meet with locals from the settlements in Port San Carlos, Wreck Point and Ajax Bay.
