        Caribbean Patrol

        The Navy has a near constant presence in the Caribbean and the North Atlantic. We send vessels to this region to act as a deterrent to drug smugglers. The Navy has been involved in countless counter-narcotic operations over the years, preventing millions of pounds worth of drugs reaching UK shores.

        The Royal Navy (RN) can affect what happens in the UK from many miles away. For most of the year there is a RN ship on patrol in the Caribbean.

        Drug trafficking is a major problem in this part of the world. Over the years RN ships have seized narcotics that would have a street value running into the hundreds of million of pound. If they were able to reach UK shores that is.

        The RN is part of the ongoing battle to prevent illegal substances reaching the UK and while a ship can only be in one place at any one time, news of the presence of a RN ship in the region will make traffickers think twice before attempting a drug run.

        A patrol ship in this part of the word also serves to preserve and strengthen bonds with our allies. A RN ship will conduct many exercises with foreign navy vessels such as the Dutch, French and Americans. The RN place critical importance in being able to fight effectively with the navies of other nations.
