TOMORROW Portsmouth’s newest Type-45 anti-air warfare destroyer will arrive in Solent waters.

HMS Dragon is the fourth of six new state-of-the-art destroyers built for the navy by BAE Systems. She was built in Scotland and will carry out operations ranging from anti-piracy and anti-smuggling activities to disaster relief work.

Following three years of sea trials the warship is set to pass the Round Tower in Old Portsmouth at about 8.30am tomorrow, before the White Ensign is raised for the first time during a ceremony at the naval base at 2.30pm.
