HMS Somerset Returns to Plymouth

HMS Somerset is due to return to Devonport Naval Base, Plymouth on Friday 4 July after a successful six-month patrol policing key international shipping lanes in the Gulf and Indian Ocean.


HMS Somerset has maintained a presence in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf since early 2014.

During her six months as part of Operation Kipion she has been engaged in a wide range of maritime security operations including counter-narcotics, counter-piracy, boarding operations, international exercises and escort duties.
