Merlin Flies over HMS Cumberland

A Royal Navy Merlin helicopter passes over HMS Cumberland during counter drug smuggling operations in the Caribbean.
HMS Cumberland is the second of four Batch 3 Type 22 frigates and the sixteenth ship of the name. Cumberland was built on the Clyde by Yarrow Shipbuilders Ltd and subsequently commissioned in her base port of Devonport in June 1989.
The present HMS Cumberland has deployed worldwide continuing a distinguished history. During World War Two, four battle honours were awarded to the previous Cumberland in recognition of operations in North Africa, the Arctic, Sabang and Burma.
The ship is affiliated to the County of Cumbria, formerly Cumberland, and is a proud "Ambassador for Cumbria". She maintains successful affiliations with a number of Sea Cadet Units, local Schools and the Cumberland Hotel
