Hey guys, i was just wondering does the Royal Navy go to our Indian Ocean territory Diego Garcia?? I know theres an american base on the island, and i was just curious to know if any of our warships docked there? Thanks
I just went on the RNs main website and searched diego garcia and on one of the links i clicked on it was about HMS Superb's deployment in 2006 and it said that she stop at the island to take on supplies. Here's the website http://www.royal-navy.mod.uk/server/show/ConWebDoc.6985/changeNav/3533 So it looks like we still use the islands, thanks for your help anyway guys!
HM ships, submarines and auxiliaries do visit but they aren't in that neck of the ocean often. I know of three that have visited in the last 20 years.
Naval Party 1002. Circa 40 Matelots, Jennys and Booties. Old man is a Commander who is the FCO Commissioner's Representative for the territories. XO is a Bootie Captain. Most of the Naval party work for the Foreign Office running the admin, police, customs and immigration. Different uniform (except the Officers and when Royal is doing warry stuff), letters of appointment.
Andy, your oppo's vets course was more likely to keep the feral moggy population down. Exterminate.
The link is to a site run by an American once posted there. Gives a flavour.
