Artifact PW2-22: Royal Visit 1971

Submitted by: M. Braham

Royal Visit 1971

During a portion of her visit she travelled aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia and was escorted by HMC Ships Qu’Appelle and St Croix. This picture shows Her Majesty and Prince Phillip on board Britannia as the two destroyers prepare to pass in line astern with the ships’ companies “manning the side” to cheer Her Majesty as they sail past.

At the time, I was Supply Officer of HMCS Qu’Appelle, the lead ship in the photograph.
