Royal Navy minehunter, HMS Grimsby, sets the pace for NATO counterparts

Royal Navy minehunter sets the pace for NATO counterparts 29/09/2014 HMS Grimsby has come to the end of a minehunting exercise led by the Spanish which saw her hunt dummy mines while coming under a variety of attack scenarios. The Royal Navy minehunter represents the UK’s commitment to the Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group 2 (SNMCMG2) in the Mediterranean - and she regularly exercises her skills with her NATO counterparts.

Crew six – which forms HMS Grimsby’s ship’s company – worked tirelessly to hunt mines despite fighting off simulated attacks from both sea and air as they would be expected to do in a war environment.
