Princess Anne and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence were in Russia to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the first WWII Arctic Convoy

 

The Princess Royal honours the 3000 British troops and their comrades that perished during the first Arctic Convoys during the Second World War, 75 years ago. The first of the Arctic Convoys, codenamed ‘Dervish’, arrived in Arkhangelsk, Russia on 31 August 1941. Running the blockade by the German Navy and avoiding perils such as mines and U-boats the convoys were essential to the supply of the Soviet Union and played a part in supplying Leningrad (present day St Petersburg) during the siege. To this day the UK and Russia continue to honour the sacrifice of Royal Navy sailors and merchant seamen, including through the UK’s Arctic Star medal. Arctic Convoy veterans and The Band of HM Royal Marines will also participate in the commemorations.

  1. Mike Tindall’s trilby is quite natty! Looks good!
    The Princess Royal always looks perfect in a uniform. It suits her like no other outfit.
    Love the picture of the sailing Danes.
    And, oh, that Bhutanese princeling! Beyond adorable!

  2. Beautiful Royal baby looking well, happy and really good in traditional costume. The Princes Royal – what can I say? She knows how to wear a uniform and how to project on the world stage in sometimes tense circumstances. Well done her – she looks great. I think at times one of Britain’s undervalued assets.
