Replenishment At Sea

HMS Cumberland met up with RFA Wave Knight for a Replenishment At Sea (RAS). It is a tricky operation, passing ropes, wires and fuel hoses between ships moving at sea, but it is a task the Royal Navy carries out day in, day out.

HMS Cumberland, a Devonport based Type 22 frigate, had only recently arrived in the Caribbean, for the start of a short deployment.
