HMS Richmond Leaves Portsmouth

Royal Navy Type 23 frigate HMS Richmond has left Portsmouth for a seven-month maritime security and counter-piracy mission around the Horn of Africa and the Far East.

Over the last few months the ship's company has been put through a series of demanding sea training packages to ensure they are ready for their mission where they will be working with a number of coalition navies.

HMS Richmond will be part of the Royal Navy's contribution to the international efforts to deter pirates around the Horn of Africa and counter this threat to the international shipping lanes.
