Busy Bay

RFA Mounts Bay, HMS Daring and HMS Diamond are pictured above docked in Gibraltar yesterday.

HMS Daring will remain docked on the Rock today after recently departing from Portsmouth last Friday on a nine month deployment.

UK Defence Secretary Michael Fallon recently announced that Daring is on a mission to protect US aircraft carriers as they strike terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

The ship’s mission also includes providing vital information to the coalition’s Combined Air Operations Centre in Al Udeid, Qatar, as well as patrolling some of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.
