HMS LANCASTER http://ift.tt/2rsyGfV HMS LANCASTER HMS Lancaster is a Duke class Type 23 frigate of the Royal Navy. She was launched by Queen Elizabeth II[2] on 24 May 1990 and is known as "The Queen's Frigate",[3] the Duke of Lancaster being a subsidiary title of the Sovereign. Being the third ship in the Type 23 class, Lancaster was originally allocated the pennant number F232 until it was realised that the 232 is the Royal Navy report form for groundings and collisions and therefore considered unlucky.[4][5] She is one of the few stag ships left in the fleet, she has some female officers but the mess decks are men-only.[6] It is quite common when she has returned from long operations that she is flown over by the Avro Lancaster bomber which is part of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight based at RAF Coningsby.http://ift.tt/2dxRKq9 View full size (2500x1666)
