On Friday 5th July, Her Majesty the Queen visited the Rosyth Naval Dockyard in Scotland for the official naming ceremony of the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.

Morson International’s local office and team have supplied engineers for many stages of the design and build of the Queen Elizabeth Class programme, and were present on the day to celebrate the landmark occasion.

Sandy Black, Morson’s Delivery Manager at Rosyth, commented: “We were delighted to be present at the naming ceremony and celebrations on Friday. Having been involved in this programme since its conception, we have supplied our major customers with up to 600+ skilled personnel on this programme since the first stages of assembly and will carry on throughout the final outfitting stage, prior to sea trial. It is an incredible project and we are very proud to be a part of it.”

The Queen was accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh at the naming ceremony, a naval tradition that dates back thousands of years which combines a celebration and a solemn blessing. A bottle of Islay malt whisky was used to christen the vessel in place of the more traditional champagne.
