The crew of the helicopter and commando carrier HMS Illustrious will celebrate her 30th birthday in style today. There will be a ceremonial parade in Portsmouth in the presence of the ship's sponsor Lady Sarah Chatto and former commanding officers including the current First Sea Lord.
HMS Illustrious was commissioned in a ceremony at sea in 1982 - on her way to the Falklands in the aftermath of the conflict - and has been an iconic member of the Royal Navy's fleet ever since. Thousands of sailors have served in her during the past three decades.
