Ministry of Defence said:
The Royal Navy frigate will undertake a range of tasks in support of British interests worldwide, including supporting the counter-narcotics effort in the West Africa region. She will also provide reassurance to UK territories and partners around the world.
Families and friends bid farewell to HMS Argyll as she left Devonport Naval Base from Devil’s Point and the Hoe, waving off their loved ones with traditional flags and good luck banners.
Since completing her previous deployment only 10 months ago, Argyll has been extremely busy conducting operations in home waters, including representing the Royal Navy at last year’s Armed Forces Day and at a highly prestigious UK Trade and Investment initiative in Hamburg.
The crew have also undertaken an intensive period of training and maintenance to prepare for the tasks ahead.
The ship’s commanding officer, Commander Tim Neild, said:
As we prepare to sail from Plymouth we can reflect on 10 months of hard work and preparation for this deployment in which my ship’s company have achieved fantastic results.
This milestone however marks the beginning of a fresh challenge for Argyll and I am hugely confident that we will deliver success in all that is asked of us and in doing so will make a significant contribution to maritime security and British interests worldwide.
On completion of her tasking in the Atlantic, the ship will undertake a number of high profile regional engagement visits in the Caribbean before returning to Devonport later this year.
