HMS
RICHMOND TO VISIT ST HELENA

 



The Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate HMS
RICHMOND (photo attached) is due to visit St Helena between 29 and 30 August as
part of her current operational deployment. She left her home port of
Portsmouth on 5 August. During her 7 month deployment in the South Atlantic she
will be promoting British interests and providing a continuous security
presence in the region.



 



The Atlantic Patrol Task will see
HMS Richmond undertake maritime security operations, including
counter-narcotics and anti-piracy patrols, providing opportunities to work with
a number of other navies to further strengthen ties and demonstrate the Royal
Navyís commitment to the region.



 



Onboard HMS Richmond is St Helenian
Leading Seaman Jamie Fowler. While the ship is in port Jamieís family, who he
has not seen for 12 years, will be invited on board to meet him.



 



A programme of activities for HMS
Richmondís two-day visit is currently being developed.
