History will repeat itself today as HMS Ocean is set to dock at Greenwich.

The Royal Navy's largest warship and its only amphibious assault craft and helicopter carrier is scheduled to make her way up the Thames at around 3.30pm today (May 7).

"On Sunday, May 10, members of the ship’s company will head to Westminster Abbey to take part in the VE Day Service.

"HMS Ocean will also host the prestigious annual Royal Navy Peregrine Trophy Photography Awards on Friday, May 8."

She will open to the public for tours on Sunday, however tickets for all times have already sold out.

She is set to depart on May 11 at around 6.10am.
