I am honoured to have brought HMS Bulwark to Greenwich and the ship’s company and I are looking forward to supporting this visit and it will be a pleasure to welcome many guests onboard over the coming days.

Captain Dean Bassett

Bulwark will remain in London until June 3 during which time her Company will take part in a series of engagement activities to mark the 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines formation.

Following her departure from London on June 3 she will travel to Southsea, Portsmouth, to take part in an amphibious beach assault that members of the public can watch from the seafront.

After that she will cross the Channel to France where international ceremonies are being held to mark the enduring spirit of the Allied Forces at D-Day.
