The sixth and final Type 45 destroyer, DUNCAN, has been delivered to HM Naval Base Portsmouth by BAE Systems and will be handed over to the Ministry of Defence at a ceremony today. DUNCAN arrived into her new home of Portsmouth for the first time this morning with a combined BAE Systems and Royal Navy crew.
DUNCAN is now based in HM Naval Base Portsmouth with her full class of sister ships, which are HMS DARING, HMS DAUNTLESS, HMS DIAMOND, HMS DRAGON and HMS DEFENDER. There are double celebrations on the naval base this week as HMS DEFENDER was commissioned into the fleet yesterday.
