At 10.15am last Saturday, March 24 2012, a short memorial service was held on board Arran’s ferry, MV Caledonian Isles, to remember the sinking of the aircraft carrier HMS Dasher in the middle of the Clyde 69 years ago on March 27 1943.

As the ferry stopped over the site of the war grave, she was shadowed by the present Dasher Fast Patrol boat and her crew.
