PRESS reader Angela Malcolm sent in these photographs following the death on Friday of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Duke’s wartime experience included a two-year period based at Rosyth, where he was responsible for escorting merchant vessels on a route that was known as ‘E-boat alley’ because of the frequency of the attacks from German vessels.

Former Dunfermline MP Thomas Docherty commented on the Press Facebook page: "When I met him in 2011 at a reception, he spoke enthusiastically about his time in West Fife."

The Duke made numerous subsequent trips to West Fife, including this one, which saw him return to the dockyard.

Describing the photographs, Angela explained: "My dad – Peter Rippin – with Prince Philip when he visited the synchro lift in Rosyth Dockyard. My dad is wearing the light-grey checked suit. I think this would be the late ’80s or very early ’90s."
