Crew of HMS Dauntless "looking forward to welcoming local people" onboard

The crew of HMS Dauntless, the region's adopted warship, are "looking forward to welcoming local people" as they open their doors to the public on Sunday February 24th.

"This is a greatly anticipated visit to our affiliated city.

"We are lucky enough to enjoy a great level of interest and support from our affiliates in and around the North East and it is a real pleasure to be able to bring such an advanced warship ship home to interact with locals, our friends and affiliates in the area."

"I know that my ship's company is looking forward to welcoming local people on board during the ship open to visitors and they will be delighted to chat about their jobs on board, what the ship has been doing and what life is like in today's modern Royal Navy."

– Commander Adrian Fryer, commanding officer of HMS Dauntless
