|Albums > Ships on the Tyne and Elsewhere > HMS Newcastle - Final Departure|
|This set of photographs shows the departure of HMS Newcastle from the Tyne for the very last time. Taken on a cold, cloudy raining evening, thus the poor lighting.|
The ship should have left the Piers at 16.00 by the City of Barcelona held it up and in the event it didn't leave until 17.30.
Ships Company at the aisles, hats waving , a 12 gun salute and a pipers lament. A fitting farewell.
