Joint Warrior Departures

Up early and across to Faslane for the Joint Warrior military exercise departures  from Faslane Naval Base in the Gareloch.

It started sunny - though very cold in the strong wind.

We lost the sun for a while as grey clouds gathered, than departed to give us some more better weather.

Some of the warships will return in a few weeks for a debrief session.

HNLMS De Ruyter - F804 - Dutch Frigate

HDMS Vædderen - F359 - Danish Patrol Ship

USS Arleigh Burke - DDG51 - American Destroyer

HMS Bulwark (L15) - Faslane, Gareloch

 HDMS Esbern Snare - L17 - Danish Command and Support Ship

 FGS Rheinland-Pfalz - F209 - German Frigate off Greenock
