Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne,

visits HMS Dreadnought in Faslane Dec 1971

In December 1971, HRH The Princess Royal, paid a visit to HMS Dreadnought (Cdr Graham Rogers in Command) alongside in Faslane. She was given a tour of the submarine by Cdr Rogers, then left the boat to have a tour of the married quarters in Helensburgh and meet some of the wives and children at playschool.

The photograph shows HRH having a peep through the Attack Periscope prompted by her host Cdr Rogers.  Note: Good job for everyone's sake, the forward stoker didn't do the boot polish trick on the eye piece!!
