HMS Iron Duke Docks at Namibian Port

A British warship has visited the Namibian port of Walvis Bay where she has built on relations with the country’s Navy and its people.

 

The Portsmouth based frigate HMS Iron Duke visited the country on the west coast of Africa for four days of sports, capability demonstrations and friendship building, as well as a bit of downtime following a busy programme down the African coast.

HMS Iron Duke left Portsmouth on 20 June deploying on Atlantic Patrol Tasking (South). She will maintain a continuous Royal Naval presence in the Atlantic, providing reassurance to British interests within the region.
