The ship’s company of Portsmouth-based destroyer HMS Edinburgh have laid a wreath in memory of the thousands of sailors who lost their lives in the Battle of the Atlantic. HMS Edinburgh is on her way home following a six month deployment around the Atlantic.
The wreath was laid at the site where HMS Beverley sank in 1943, taking all but four of her crew with her. Edinburgh’s chaplain, Father David Yates, led the ship’s company in a Memorial Service at the site.
