HMS Monmouth

Type 23 frigate HMS Monmouth on patrol.
Following a successful maintenance period in July and a well deserved leave period during August, it is now back to business for HMS Monmouth.
Since returning from her Gulf deployment one third of the Ship's Company have moved on. The challenge is now to train and integrate 50 new faces as quickly as possible in order to be fully ready for the future programme.
