Dutch capital makes Edam good first foreign visit for Duncan
A GLORIOUS winter sunrise over the industrial shoreline of the North Sea Canal as Britain’s newest destroyer makes her way towards Amsterdam.
HMS Duncan spent eight days across the North Sea in the Dutch capital – her first foreign port of call – flying the flag for Blighty in support of major trade shows.
The visit to the Netherlands was deliberately timed to coincide with a defence exhibition just down the coast in Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port, then the largest marine equipment trade show on the continent.
Can you help? Would you have a little time in October and November to help the Royal British Legion Brussels Branch deliver and collect poppy collection boxes? Do you know of a venue near you that you feel should be selling poppies? It’s important for us that the donations we collect in the Brussels area stay in Belgium to help ex-servicemen and their families.
