|Retirement cake for the passenger ferry ST HELEN|
St Helen retired after the sailing from Fishbourne on Thursday March 26th after performing a final unscheduled round trip for invited guests, ex-staff and enthusiasts.
Amongst our guests were children from St Helen's primary school who were invited because her first passengers in 1983 were children of that very same school.
Her final traffic was led onboard by a 1983 Rover SD1 police car with it's blue lights flashing.
A buffet and cake was enjoyed onboard and she was given a salute of numerous blasts by St Clare as she left Fishbourne.
