HMS Quorn will be sailed into the ship’s affiliated town of Ipswich on Thursday for a five-day visit.
The Portsmouth-based ship’s company will exercise their freedom of entry to the borough by marching through the town centre, led by the pomp and splendour of the Band of her Majesty’s Royal Marines.
In February 2011, just three months before deploying to the Gulf, HMS Quorn and her ship’s company was awarded the freedom of entry to the borough of Ipswich.
This granted the company the right to march through the borough on ceremonial occasions. Shortly after receiving the award, HMS Quorn deployed to Bahrain.
