The Royal Navy type 23 frigate, HMS Chatham, returns to the Medway town on 9 November.

The visit marks the 20th anniversary of the ship's commissioning at Chatham in 1990, which was the first time such an event had taken place outside a Royal Navy establishment.

The ship will berth in Basin 2 at Chatham Maritime at around 2pm on Tuesday.

On Saturday 13 November, the ship will be open to the public.

The arrival starts a week long visit which will also coincide with the Remembrance Day events taking place on Thursday 11 and Sunday 14 November, which will be attended by groups of the ship's company.

HMS Chatham recently returned from a seven month deployment off the coast of Somalia where she was lead vessel for Operation Ocean Shield, the NATO action to counter piracy.

HMS Chatham will be open to the public from 9.30 until 5pm on Saturday 13 November. Entrance is free.
