"Sailors who spent the holidays away from their families are due to arrive back in Portsmouth today to a heroes’ welcome.

The Royal Navy’s helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious is due to sail into the city after those on board missed Christmas and the new year with their families to help in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

The carrier is due to pass the Round Tower in Old Portsmouth at 12.25pm today."

Absolutly brilliant love to see this stuff. Will be my turn on a day in Febuary. All I have to do is sort out a suitably embarrassing banner.
