By kind permission of the Lymington Harbour Commissioners, Lymington will be hosting the Royal Navy on 5th July when Royal Navy Patrol ship, HMS Trumpeter, visits.
The visit coincides with a series of events and activities planned by local organisations as part of a Cornwallis Remembered commemoration.
HMS Trumpeter is a P2000 Archer Class patrol ship. These small vessels are ideally crafted to navigate the shallow waters of ports like Lymington. They are used in various roles including maritime protection, but HMS Trumpeter is one of fourteen which are attached to universities around the United Kingdom to train Royal Navy officers of the future.
