WW2-era BRP Rajah Humabon to be turned into a museum exhibit

The decommissioned World War II-era BRP Rajah Humabon (PS-11) will be turned into one of the exhibits at the Philippine Navy (PN) Museum in Sangley Point, Cavite City, Philippine News Agency reported.

Philippine Fleet Spokesperson Lt. Sahirul Taib said in an interview Thursday that turning the ship into an exhibit would happen shortly after it is stripped of its navigational equipment and other usable items.

Taib added that turning it into one of the exhibits was in honor of its 38 years of service and long-tenure as the Navy's flagship.


The retirement of BRP Rajah Humabon is in-line with the Navy's Strategic Sail Plan of "moving to legacy vessels to more and capable and modern vessels," he earlier said.
