Prince William has been in the south today, paying a second visit to the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport. He was there for the official opening six years ago.
Today the prince attended a service of re-dedication for the newly-restored HMS Alliance. It's had a £7 million refurbishment. Afterwards - he was taken on a tour of the sub, as Andrew Pate reports.
More than two hundred volunteers have knitted over a thousand squares to make a 400-metre long scarf for a submarine at a museum in Hampshire.
The community project involved knitters from the Women’s Institute, local churches, sheltered housing schemes and social knitting groups.
The giant scarf wrapped around HMS Alliance will be displayed for a few days, if the weather is good. In the New Year it will displayed in the Learning Centre at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport.
The members of more than forty community groups have knitted a 400-metre long scarf for a submarine in Hampshire.
More than two hundred people took part in the project - they knitted 1,337 squares to make the finished piece for the vessel which is based at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport.
It is all part of a fun scheme to 'keep the submarine warm' during the winter - an initiative to bring the museum and the local community together.
When keen gardener Eric Rayment found a giant courgette in his vegetable patch, he decided to turn it into a submarine.
Inspired by his work onboard HMS Alliance, the only surviving World War 2 ocean going British submarine, he turned the vegetable into a submarine and called it HMS Courgette.
The submarine will be on display in the Learning Centre at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum.
