Royal Navy’s HMS Trent is bound for the waters of the Gulf of Guinea, as it heads for security patrols and a mission to support allies in West Africa.
HMS Trent is now turning its attentions south to the tropical waters of the Gulf of Guinea for the next three months as it becomes the first Royal Navy ship to sail to the region in three years.
With Royal Marines of 42 Commando on board, the ship will carry out a range of joint exercises and training to strengthen ties and develop plans for future operations in the region.
Trent will visit Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Gambia and Cape Verde, and will take part in French-led multinational exercises that will bring together international partners in the area, known as Exercise Grand African Nemo.
