When HMS Duncan departed on her maiden mission on 2nd March, she took with her an extra crew member – Hatch, the ship’s dog from the Mary Rose!


HMS Duncan is on deployment to the Mediterranean and the Gulf for nine months, working with allied nations to protect merchant shipping – a job the Mary Rose did during her first deployment, albeit much closer to home!


Hatch is travelling with Lt James Baddeley, Deputy Marine Engineer Officer on HMS Duncan, who will be sending us back messages and pictures from Hatch’s adventures!


We will be updating this page constantly with postcards from Hatch, so watch this space, or follow us on twitter via the hashtag #HatchAtSea.
