Brett 110 - All Hands On Deck

Lee Netting Director & General Manager, Tina Moon PA to Director & General Manager, Mark Hand Fitter, Nigel Tyler Production Manager, Terry Norris Plant Supervisor, Lee Donohue Relief Plant Supervisor, Megan Wills Internal Sales Representative, Sonia Dusanj Sales Co-ordinator, Katie Sheen Reception Sales Administrator, all volunteered with the Chatham Historic Dockyard and set a sail on-board the HMS Cavalier, helping the Collections Care Team with cleaning the historic and treasured artefacts that are currently on display aboard the destroyer.

HMS Cavalier 

Built in 1944, HMS Cavalier served in the Arctic, Western Approaches and British Pacific Fleet before finally paying off at Chatham in 1972. Today she is preserved as The National Destroyer Memorial commemorating the 11,000 lives and 142 Royal Navy Destroyers lost during the Second World War.

One of 96 war emergency destroyers HMS Cavalier currently resides in No.2 Dry Dock on the site of the Old Single Dock, where the Royal Navy’s most famous Chatham built ship HMS Victory was constructed. A fitting location for a vessel once known as ‘the fastest ship in the fleet’.
