#HMSWestminster returns home from the Middle East

HMS Westminster arrived back in Portsmouth today (February 27) to hundreds of cheering friends and family following a six-and-a-half month deployment to the Indian Ocean and the Gulf. The Type 23 frigate divided her time between the Indian Ocean where she conducted counter-piracy and counter-narcotics patrols and the Gulf where she carried out maritime security patrols and exercises with allies. HMS Westminster left Portsmouth on a hot summer’s day in August and during her time away has visited 11 different ports in eight countries en route to and while operating in the Middle East, steaming 36,500 nautical miles in the process.
