Ocean Wave December 2017
Greetings from the mighty ‘O’ in an OCEAN Wave that has seen us cover over 11,000 miles since our last edition'
We last wrote to you after answering the call to carry out hurricane disaster operations on OP RUMAN. OP RUMAN became the biggest overseas deployment of the British military this year with over 2,000 military and civilian personnel. With OCEAN’s capability, that is her exceptional crew, her Landing craft and extra helicopter lift, we became a key part its success.
With this the compassion and enthusiasm that your sailors and marines brought to the operation, from the moment we were told we were going to the Caribbean till the day we left had a huge impact on all we were able to help.
So often hope was restored and the energy to start again came with the arrival and help of our people.
As we move through the season of remembrance, back onto our previous tasking, we do so with pride and with the knowledge that our deployment will have already changed and saved the lives of so many. View Newsletter
