HDMS Peder Skram escorting Queen Margrethe to Leningrad

In May 1975 a royal squadron was formed as HDMS Peder Skram was to escort the Royal Yacht, Dannebrog, to Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) when Queen Margrethe as the first royal person ever paid an official visit to the then Soviet Union. It was the second time a Danish warship named Peder Skram was escorting a royal person to St. Petersburg. The first time was in 1866 (see "The armoured frigate Peder Skram").

The Queen had the opportunity of sailing with the Frigate at the end of the voyage, and before embarking she could give a most personal talk to the crew lined up on the quarterdeck. It was not an everyday event that a Danish - or NATO - warship visited the potential enemy in one of the main bases of the Soviet Baltic Fleet.
