I enjoyed a nice warm afternoon photographing the crew of the HMS Liverpool as they marched through Liverpool city centre. It was good to see the proud people of Liverpool host the crew of the Royal Navy’s Type 42 destroyer, as the HMS Liverpool made it’s final voyage to the city.

The crew took to the streets of Liverpool to exercise their Freedom of the City for the last time. HMS Liverpool was awarded this honour in 1982 and has exercised this ancient tradition on numerous occasions during her close affiliation with the great maritime city.

The ship is due to be decommissioned on 30th March 2012 and has since left Liverpool.
