2017 is the 'Year of the Navy' to mark the arrival of a new aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth... the sailors will be performing Royal Duties at St James's Palace, Windsor Castle and the Tower of London. The duty traditionally falls to one of the five Foot Guards Regiments from the Army's Household Division. The Navy will take over from the Coldstream Guards. The sailors are dressed in navy blue double breasted greatcoats with white belts, white caps, white gaiters and black boots. Royal Navy sailors have performed the Changing the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace for the first time in its 357-year history.

SAVE THE LAST CANADIAN DESTROYER!

HMCS Athabaskan is the last remaning destroyer and former flagship of the Royal Canadian Navy. She was recently decomissioned after serving proudly for 45 years. She had a bold career and is a veteran of numerous conflicts. As the last of her kind, it is imperative that she be preserved for future generations. We have until January 4th 2018 to purchase the ship, or else she will be scrapped. We cannot allow that to happen to this mighty ship! The current goal is to purchase the ship outright and operate her as a private museum trust in Halifax, at no cost to the Canadian taxpayers.
Notable reasons to save her:
-Former flagship of the Royal Canadian Navy
-Canada's last destroyer
-Served Canada proudly for 45 years (1972-2017)
-Last Canadian warship to share the Cold War arcutecture, which was shared by many Canadian destroyers
-During the Gulf War, she rescued the crews of the United States' warships, USS Princeton & USS Tripoli after they tripped Iraqi mines
-During the War on Terror, she supported the Invasion of Afghanistan in the immidate aftermath of 9/11
-Provided disaster relief after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 & the Haitian Earthquake in 2010
-Offers a chance to educate the younger generation about the role of the Royal Canadian Navy
-Provides a space to train future sailors
-Showcases an example of the modern warship, which would be a first for Canada
-If scrapped, it would be a large loss of history for Canada

Please help us save this national trasure of Canada before it's too late! (GoFundMe page in bio)

"The 🇨🇱 Chilean battleship Almirante Latorre" - (Part 6 = The ship sails to the UK for modernization, and the beginnings of the Chilean naval mutiny of 1931) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - The Chilean navy battleship Almirante Latorre, in dry dock in 1934. -------------------------------------------- Almirante Latorre was sent to the United Kingdom for a modernization at the Devonport Dockyard in 1929. Departing Chile on May 15th, she traveled past Balboa before traversing the Panama Canal nine days later. After refueling at Port of Spain on May 28th 1929, the dreadnought continued across the Atlantic, passing the Azores before arriving in Plymouth on June 24th. Major alterations included rebuilding the bridge, updating the main battery fire control to more modern standards and adding it for the secondary armament for the first time, and replacing her steam turbine engines. Also added were a new mast between the third and fourth turrets, anti-torpedo bulges similar to the British Queen Elizabeth-class battleships, and new anti-aircraft guns. Nearly two years after the modernization began, Almirante Latorre sailed back to Valparaíso on March 5th 1931 and put in on April 12th. Two 33-long-ton (34 t) tug boats which had been acquired for use in the harbors of Punta Arenas and Valparaíso were carried on the battleship's deck during her voyage back to Chile. -------------------------------------------- Despite the goodwill brought on by the removal of the "strongman" President Carlos Ibáñez del Campo in July 1931, Chile could not overcome the Great Depression's severe economic effects, and wages for civil servants making over 3,000 pesos a year were cut by 12–30 percent to reduce government expenditures. This triggered a severe reaction among the sailors of the navy, who had already suffered a 10 percent salary cut and 50 percent loss in overseas bonuses. Various members of the crew on board Almirante Latorre, but no officers, met on August 31st 1931 and decided that a mutiny was the best course of action. #🇨🇱BattleshipAlmiranteLatorre

"The 🇨🇱 Chilean battleship Almirante Latorre" - (Part 5 = The ship gains the role as Flagship of the Chilean navy) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - The Chilean battleship Almirante Latorre in the Panama Canal. -------------------------------------------- In her capacity as flagship of the Chilean Navy, Almirante Latorre was frequently utilized by the president for various functions. In the aftermath of the magnitude 8.5 1922 Vallenar earthquake, Almirante Latorre was used to transport Alessandri to the affected area. The ship also brought "tents, medical supplies, rations, clothing and 2,000,000 pesos" for those affected. By 1923, Chile only had Almirante Latorre, a cruiser, and five destroyers in commission, leading The New York Times to remark "experts would probably place Chile third in potential sea power [after Brazil and Argentina]". While Almirante Latorre was individually more powerful than the Brazilian or Argentine dreadnoughts, they had two each to Chile's one. -------------------------------------------- Compounding this was a lack of modern cruisers to accompany the lone dreadnought. In 1924, Almirante Latorre hosted the president again when he visited Talcahuano for the grand opening of a new naval drydock there. After the fall of the January Junta in 1925, the dreadnought hosted the returning President Alessandri during a Naval Review in Valparaíso; while on board, he gave a speech to senior naval officials to assure them that his new government "was for all Chileans, and not partisan in its inspiration". In September, the last month of his term, Alessandri received the United Kingdom's Edward, Prince of Wales, on board the battleship. The visit briefly quelled domestic unrest, and it marked the beginning of negotiations for a British naval mission, which arrived in the following year. #🇨🇱BattleshipAlmiranteLatorre
