HMS Bulwark made a stunning entrance to the Grand Harbour of Valetta Malta this week almost a year to the day since her last.
Nearing the end of a 4 month Cougar 14 deployment to the Gulf and Mediterranean, the Fleet Flagship paid a short port visit to recuperate from her busy operational schedule of exercises and Defence engagements in the region.
For many of the 500-strong Ship’s Company this period of operational stand-down was a welcome return to an island peppered with many happy memories and a wealth of recreational activities to enjoy.
HMS Bulwark is due to return to her home port of Devonport in time for Christmas.
