Daring into action

Although not in service yet the first Type 45 destroyer HMS Daring has been called into action to come to the rescue of a fishing boat that ran into trouble off the island of Arran. The destroyer picked up a distress call from the Irish trawler Paloma at the end of August and went to give assistance while waiting for the arrival of life boats from Arran and Troon.
