The crew of Royal Navy warship HMS Dauntless are getting ready to visit Norfolk again.

Adrian Fryer, commanding officer of the ship affiliated to Great Yarmouth, said he hopes the ship can visit its adopted port in “early to mid 2014” to officially celebrate receiving the Freedom of the Borough. Great Yarmouth Borough Council agreed to grant Dauntless and her crew honorary Freedom in June after the 7,350-tonne battleship spent a February weekend moored in Yarmouth’s Outer Harbour.

The next visit will be the third time Dauntless has stopped at Yarmouth and it is hoped the crew will exercise their new freedom with a march through the streets of the seaside town with swords drawn, colours flying and drums beating.

Dauntless – which, at 152 metres in length, is as long as 16 double decker buses – joined the Navy fleet in November 2010 and has been affiliated to Yarmouth ever since.
