HMS Edinburgh visits to Leith Docs
Here is a photo of HMS Edinburgh, a Royal Navy Type 42
Destroyer, on a visit to n Leith Docks, Edinburgh in 1994:
most recent visit to Leith Docks was for a week from 15 May 2013,
billed as being the final visit before decommission.
A petition has now been
created, demanding that "HMS Edinburgh be kept as a tourist
attraction in Leith Docks, beside Royal Yacht Britannia."
Please click on this
e-petition web page to read more about the petition and to sign it.
The commission will remain open until February 28, 2014.
I see that, so far, 1,055
people have signed this petition. If the number of signatures
reaches 100.000, it could be debated in the House of Commons.

about this petition in the EdinPhoto guestbook on June 20, 2013..
