Final Joint Warrior Departures

Well today sees the final departures to start the Joint Warrior exercise in the North West of Scotland.

USS Samuel B Roberts being the only exception as she remains in the naval base to undergo some essential repairs.

Once again we faced the fairly strong winds with just a slight increase in temperatures.

Visibility wasn't the best - but much improved on earlier days.

So now we wish the various services a good and safe military exercise, and hope that we see one or two return to the Clyde for a debrief session. 

Time will tell if that materialises.
