Alice Duncan and Captain Ned Tutton

Star Wars fans – Red Funnel Ferries – is marking Star Wars Day (May the 4th) by reminding customers that it operates a dog-friendly service.

Staff at the ferry firm, which operates between the Isle of Wight and Southampton, have dressed up their four-legged friends as a host of Star Wars characters including; Darth Vader, Princess Leia and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The dogs were privileged to have their photos taken on the Bridge of Red Funnel’s Red Falcon, alongside Captain Ned Tutton and Captain Alice Duncan.
