Royal Navy mine hunter HMS Shoreham returned to her home port of HM Naval Base Clyde on Friday, August 28, after three years of operations in the Persian Gulf.
The Sandown Class mine hunter has been working with international navies to help keep vital sea lanes safe and conduct seabed surveys.
Sailing the ship into port was Crew 1 from the Faslane-based First Mine Counter Measures Squadron (MCM1), the 34 men and women who have run the vessel for the past eight-months.
The Commanding Officer of HMS Shoreham, Lieutenant Commander Mark Redmayne, commented:
This has been a significant deployment, both in time and effort for the ship and ship’s company.
