On Wednesday 13th December a Civic Reception was held in Glasgow City Chambers by the Lord Provost to recognise the importance of PS Waverley to Glasgow. Officers from PS Waverley & HMS Defender along with Directors from Waverley Excursions & Waverley Steam Navigation Company attended the reception. HMS Defender is one of the six Type 45 destroyers built on the Clyde and is officially affiliated with PS Waverley. Others present at the reception included politicians, major Waverley supporters and personnel from the tourism and heritage sectors. Below are some photos taken by Neil Warbrick.
