Exercise Red Alligator (Taurus 09)

Exercise Red Alligator was a joint training exercise between UK and Saudi Arabian troops and naval forces. Royal Marines from HMS Bulwark and RFA Lyme Bay made amphibious landings alongside Saudi units north of Gizan. Saudi and RN warships also worked side by side including the refuelling of T23 HMS Somerset by a Saudi oiler.
