HMS Quorn Departs for NATO Task Group

Royal Navy minehunter HMS Quorn sailed from Portsmouth today, April 20, bound for Glasgow, where she will rendezvous with a NATO task group destined for the Baltic Sea.

She will join Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Squadron 1 (SNMCMG1), a multinational force of minehunters conducting exercises in the Baltic region in support of NATO operations.

Throughout the three-month deployment the ship, which will take over from HMS Pembroke, will operate closely with NATO allies in waters off northern Europe, conducting exercises and historic ordnance disposal.
