HMS Lancaster Sailors Tour USS Wasp

U.S. Marines with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) and U.S. Navy Sailors with the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1) invited British Royal Navy sailors from the HMS Lancaster to tour the ship while out at sea April 30, 2015.

During their visit, Royal Navy sailors were able to tour the ship and view static displays Marines prepared showcasing several of their vehicles and weapon systems within their arsenal.

Marines also took advantage of the visit by asking their guests questions about their country, branch of service and just having the opportunity to interact with them.

Once the Royal Navy sailors finished viewing the Marines’ static displays, they continued their tour with the U.S. Navy Sailors aboard the ship.
