Welcome back lads!

HMS Sutherland returned to her home port of Plymouth yesterday, Wednesday 20 June 2007, following a nine-month deployment to the Gulf.



The ship deployed in September 2006 to act as the United Kingdom's naval unit in the Arabian Gulf helping to protect the Iraqi oil platforms.

In addition to these duties the ship also took part in two multi-national maritime exercises with the Royal Navy of Oman and the Pakistan Navy in Karachi which included a Fleet review by President Musharraf.

The frigate's busy deployment saw her working alongside several other nations, including several days with the French aircraft carrier the Charles de Gaulle conducting flying operations in support of British and coalition troops in Afghanistan, as well as deterring piracy and smuggling in the Middle East region.

Cheers Jenny,

At least we got some recognition somewhere. Watched the news on Weds and all of yesterday and didn't see one mention of our return. Went out and got the Plymouth Evening Herald yesterday and still no word.

Can't quite figure it out

It's silly! I remember when ships coming home would make the front page, 2nd or 3rd in the herald and now nothing! What has happened in the past 5yrs!!!

Anyway, I thought they deserved a mention, welcome back lads!

p.s. I know a (L)Mem who is a cracking drinking partner on there!
