Breakthrough in bid to save HMS Caroline, says heritage boss – Local – Portsmouth News

THE First World War cruiser HMS Caroline will be saved, the man in charge of securing the ship’s future said last night.

Professor Dominic Tweddle spoke to The News as the deadline passed for heritage bids to be submitted to the Ministry of Defence yesterday.

He said: ‘We’ll save the ship, I don’t think that’s now in doubt.’

But Prof Tweddle, who is director-general of the Portsmouth-based National Museum of the Royal Navy, remained coy on whether HMS Caroline will remain in Belfast or come to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

That’s encouraging.
