HMS Severn sails into London for London Fire Brigade Anniversary
Royal Navy patrol vessel HMS Severn arrived in London January 24 for a four-day visit to support the 150th Anniversary of the London Fire Brigade.
She was greeted by one of the brigade’s Lambeth-based fire boats – Fire Dart – which saluted Severn with jets of water as she approached North Greenwich.
HMS Severn then headed for West India Dock where she will be berthed for the anniversary celebrations.
On Monday, the ship is hosting a capability demonstration on board in the evening for specially invited guests, including the Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade.
Two buglers from The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, Collingwood, will perform during a ceremonial sunset.
HMS Severn will leave the city mid-afternoon on Wednesday, January 27.
