HMS Lancaster has a new Commanding Officer at the helm.
After two years at the helm Commander Steve Moorhouse handed over command of the ‘Queen’s Frigate’ to Commander Peter Laughton MBE.
HMS Lancaster is nearing the end of her seven month deployment and has just left Trinidad in the Caribbean after spending five days there.
It has been a great honour to sail Lancaster into Trinidad as we come to the end of a very successful period of counter narcotic operations. For me it is the last of a long line of islands visited this year and as it is the final port that I sail Lancaster into, it is a place that will always be memorable to me.
It is a tremendous honour to assume command of Lancaster in Trinidad and have the opportunity to bring the ship home after its long and highly successful deployment to the Caribbean. Trinidad and Tobago has a long and rich history with the UK and the Royal Navy in particular, and I believe that our visit has renewed old friendships and helped establish many new ones, in particular with the Trinidad Coast Guard.
