With effect from 1st April 2008 the Queens Harbourmaster position which has been in existence since 1815 here in Pembroke Dock will no longer exist and the Milford Haven Port Authority will have complete control over the Milford Haven Waterway.

The RN group were welcomed by the Mayor of Pembroke Dock, Councillor Paul Weatherall, the Deputy Mayor of Pembroke Dock Councillor Ron Watts, Councillor Phil Gwyther and the Town Clerk, Ian Jones. Gifts were exchanged between the Town Council and the RN / RMAS and it was agreed that the last ensign to be flown at the RN Facility would be given on long term loan to the Town Council for safe keeping and display in the Town Council Chamber. The Mayor welcomed the visitors to the Meyrick Suite (Council Chamber) and thanked them for the assistance to the town by the RN and RMAS over many years.

Captain Wills in his response thanked the Town and people of Pembroke Dock for their support to the RN and the facility over many years and he also recalled the building of many ships in the era when the RN Dockyard was in existence. He also thanked those who organised the Religious Service held in the Facility last year which was in anticipation to the facilities closure. He also reported that the closure would not be the end of the close ties between Pembroke Dock and the Royal Navy, arrangements had been put in place to ensure that Royal Navy ships could continue to visit, including HMS Pembroke who's compliment are pleased to be affiliated to Pembroke and Pembroke Dock.. Commander Tony Mason RNR who is the RN Liaison Officer for the Milford Haven Waterway will remain in post.
