Fastest of the 42s... HMS York came back home to Pompey today to cheers from the crowd gathered on the Round Tower and a noisy gun salute answered by the gun on Fort Blockhouse. Always sad to see a ship coming in with her paying off pennant flying - now we have just one Type 42, HMS Edinburgh, and she's due to be decommissioned next year.
HMS York was launched in 1982 (a week before the Argies surrendered in the Falklands) and has been in service since 1985. During her career she has earned battle honours in the second Gulf War and was also part of the preparations for operations in Libya and humanitarian efforts after that conflict had come to a halt.
