Prior to leaving Fort-de-France, and once the handover was complete, some members of the ship’s company were able to enjoy a tour of the nearby historical site of Fort St Louis complete with its free-roaming iguanas.

Reflecting on the deployment for the ship, Wave Knight’s Commanding Officer Simon Herbert said, “This has been a highly successful APT(N) deployment by Wave Knight, which has seen a number of defence activities delivered, including defence engagement, maritime security operations, and local capacity building”.

He further added, “This deployment has highlighted the great versatility of Wave Knight and her ship’s company including RFA, RN and Royal Engineer Commandos who have been instrumental in the ship’s successful support to defence engagements across both the APT(N) and APT(S) areas of operation.

“We now hand over to Mounts Bay and wish them every success in their future Atlantic Patrol Task North duties”.
