Service History

In March 1987, Hurworth was visiting Ostend when the cross channel ferry Herald of Free Enterprise capsized leaving Zeebrugge; two of her divers were awarded the Queens Gallantry Medal for their efforts in the rescue.[4]

On 2 March 2009, she was the centrepiece of the festivities to mark the 800th anniversary of the granting of a freedom charter by King John to Great Yarmouth.[5]
