HMS Diamond sails for maritime security mission in the Mediterranean

This is going to be a challenging deployment for everyone on board, but pressure is what makes a Diamond shine.

Lieutenant Commander Oliver Clark, the ship's Logistics Officer, said:

'After a busy summer we are ready to get back to work for our next mission, having spent a short period alongside to get ready. This is going to be a challenging deployment for everyone on board, but pressure is what makes a Diamond shine.'

Over the last couple of months, Diamond has been involved in monitoring Russian naval activity, visited four ports, helped train warfare officers and RAF air crew, hosted two ambassadors, represented the Royal Navy in front of a million people at Bournemouth Air Festival and joined NATO ships in the Baltic.
