The Royal Navy has said farewell to sea vessels HMS Blyth and HMS Ramsey as they are decommissioned in a formal ceremony in Rosyth, Scotland. 

Affiliates and friends bid the sea vessels a final farewell at Rosyth Dockyard, honouring their 20 years of service protecting UK interests around the world.

HMS Blyth returned to Scotland in March after spending two months attached to a NATO task group in the Baltic, as part of NATO's Standing Mine Countermeasures Group One.

The minehunter HMS Ramsey returned to HM Naval Base Clyde in June last year after a successful deployment to the Baltic Sea, having joined about two dozen other ships and aircraft for the biggest wargames of 2020 in the Baltic.
