It's over and out for HMS Enterprise as she completes final voyage after 20 years at sea
After 20 years of service, the Royal Navy's HMS Enterprise has returned to the harbour at Portsmouth for the last time before ending her service.
The Devonport-based Echo class multi-role survey vessel arrived back on Monday ahead of being decommissioned.
The crew of HMS Enterprise wrote on social media before their return: "HMS Enterprise will make her final entry into HMNB Portsmouth tomorrow before decommissioning later this week.
"Pennants will be flying, sirens sounded, and water escort supplied by KHM.
"We'll pass Round Tower at around 11:00. Come down and say goodbye to the Starship."
HMS Enterprise has served across the world and conducted oceanographic and hydrographic surveys, ensured safe navigation on and under the water, and acted as a floating base for mine countermeasures activities.
The survey ship was manned by a 50-strong crew, experts in examining and mapping the seafloor.
During her final year of service, the ship and her crew completed a deployment to the Arctic and sailed within 1,000 miles of the 'top of the world'.
Earlier this month, the people of Tiverton bid farewell to the ship as her crew paraded through the Devon town for the last time.
