HMS Manchester to visit SVG

As part of the Independence celebrations, a British Naval vessel, the HMS Manchester, will visit St. Vincent and the Grenadines this month.

The vessel is a Type 42 Batch 3 Destroyer and is approaching her third decade of service in the Royal Navy.

However, through extensive modernization, it remains one of the most potent weapons platforms in the world.

Superintendent of Police, Michael Charles, said the vessel will take part in the National Independence Parade on October 27th.
