Royal Navy in "isn't quite dead yet" shocker

To prove the RN isn't quite dead despite the best efforts of New Labour the largest deployment for several years, Taurus 09, is about to depart to the Far East until August. A 12 ship fleet, which includes a US and a French destroyer, will be led by HMS Bulwark and also include the recently refitted HMS Ocean, 2 Type 23 frigates, 4 RFAs and 2 Trafalgar class SSNs.

The deployment which includes a Royal Marines detachment will be conducting amphibious exercises in the Mediterranean and South East Asia.
