HMS Lancaster arrives in Gibraltar

HMS Lancaster is the fourth ship in the 'Duke' Class Type 23 frigates.
HMS Lancaster arrived in Gibraltar yesterday.

She is in Gibraltar to carry out live firing exercises in the Strait for the Principle Warfare Officer’s Course.

Who's a pretty girl then?
HMS Lancaster is also home to Sunny, the famous talking parrot.

Sunny has been living on board for the last 6 years. Sunny’s predecessor was renowned for his inappropriate comments but sadly went to a watery grave when he attempted to escape.

Sunny was purchased by The Sun newspaper in England as a replacement parrot for HMS Lancaster.
