The UK ships RFA Argus and HMS Medway recently sailed into Bridgetown, Barbados, to replenish supplies ahead of anticipated hurricanes.
The two ships form the UK’s immediate response to any disasters which may hit the Caribbean.
Embarked on board the ships are different teams working together as a UK Task Group. They have been supporting British Overseas Territories and other Caribbean nations in the region, rehearsing the delivery of disaster relief and conducting maritime security patrols and counter-narcotics operations with local police forces.
Recent exercises have taken place in the British Virgin Islands, Montserrat, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Cayman Islands.
Both Argus and Medway are equipped with helicopters to deliver supplies as well as sea boats with a specialist Commando team of Royal Marines who can make direct beach landings.
