Followed closely by Clyde Marine Services' tugs BRUISER and BATTLER, the Type 42 destroyer EDINBURGH was caught passing below the Erskine Bridge today, as she made her way to King George V Dock for a courtesy visit to Glasgow. EDINBURGH, one of the Batch 3 ships and a product of the Cammell Laird shipyard on the Mersey, joined the Royal Navy when commissioned in December 1985, the penultimate ship of the class. She recently returned from a tour of duty in the Far East. She can be distinguished from her immediate sisters MANCHESTER, GLOUCESTER and YORK as she has raised bulwarks at her bow. These were fitted during trials of the Phalanx CIWS, which was originally mounted forward but later moved to the decks either side of the funnel.
