Iron Duke was launched on 2 March 1991 by Lady Jane King in the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Wellington.

Capetonians are used to hearing the sound of the noon gun at least once a day.

But tomorrow will be different.

The Navy’s Chief Petty Officer, Dudley Malgas says the Signal Hill Noon Gun will be used in a 21 gun salute to welcome the HMS Iron Duke.

“They will follow with their 21 gun salute, and we will then respond with our 21 gun salute.”

It’s going to be a noisy affair, but Malgas has welcomed spectators on Signal Hill tomorrow.
