UK In Action: The Tower Bridge

The Former First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Alan West (Sept 2002 - Feb 2006), attended a ceremony in the painted hall, where he was presented the New Trafalgar Dispatch by Admiral the Lord Boyce. He then boarded the Jubilant, HMS Victory's cutter, and proceeded down the the Thames to HQS Wellington. During the passage and as the Jubilant came under Tower Bridge, there was a 15 gun salute from HMS Belfast. The dispatch was handed to the Dean of St Paul's Cathedral the Very Reverend Dr John Moses, by the First Sea Lord in the presence of the Princess Royal.
