HMS Illustrious to leave Portsmouth for the last time

Task Force Group Photex

If you live in or around Portsmouth you have probably heard that HMS Illustrious is set to be scrapped after a number of bids to try and save the historic ship failed.

If you are wanting to watch the final sailing of HMS Illustrious then tomorrow will be your last chance as it leaves Portsmouth for the last time as it sets sail to be scrapped.

The times could very but at the moment the Ship is due to leave Portsmouth at 0930 and pass the Round Tower in Old Portsmouth at around 0945.

I myself and gutted that I won’t be able to make it down there due to work commitments but will be watching the social media for pictures and comments.

If you are travelling down make sure you wrap up warm and give her a wave from me 👋
