HMS Daring Prepares for Nine-Month Deployment (UK)

HMS Daring, one of the Royal Navy’s new-generation Type 45 destroyers, is gearing up for a wide-ranging deployment which takes her to the Far East – and beyond.

The air defence warship will demonstrate the Navy’s global reach during the nine-month deployment which includes contributing to maritime security in the Asia Pacific, conducting science and technology trials in the Pacific and representing the UK in Exercise Bersama Lima – part of the Five Power Defence Arrangement annual programme of exercises in the region.

The deployment will also allow Daring and her 190 crew to represent the UK at high-profile celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the Royal Australian Navy.

A series of port visits is also lined up for Daring to conduct regional Defence Engagement.

Her Commanding Officer, Commander Angus Essenhigh, said:

“This exciting deployment will do much to build on existing alliances, establish and strengthen new relationships and contribute to maritime security in the Asia Pacific – a region in which Britain has historic trade and security links.

“We will also remain ready to react to contingent operations should they arise.”

HMS Daring will leave her home port of Portsmouth on May 27.
