Defence Secretary Visits Oman for Joint Exercises

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has visited Oman, to demonstrate the UK’s commitment to the country and the wider Gulf region.

HMS Queen Elizabeth – the Royal Navy’s flagship aircraft carrier – is docked at Duqm port in Oman, as the UK Armed Forces carried out joint land, sea and air exercises with the Omani Forces.

The visit represents the UK’s integrated approach to defence and foreign policy and the UK’s enduring commitment to working with Oman and Gulf partners on promoting regional security and stability.

Details of HMS Diamond’s maintenance in Taranto revealed


HMS Diamond, a Type 45 Destroyer, deployed as part of HMS Queen Elizabeth’s Carrier Strike Group but had to detach from the group for repairs in July before re-joining the group later.
We now know what those issues were thanks to a session of the Defence Select Committee. Earlier this month, during a meeting of the Defence Committee, the committee sought evidence for their report ‘The Navy: purpose and procurement’. The transcript is below.

Mark Francois MP:
“These ships are £1 billion a pop. I’m sorry, but the taxpayer deserves better than this from the Royal Navy. What happened to Diamond? What was the problem?”

Vice Admiral Chris Gardner:
“Diamond suffered a failure of one of her gas turbines, basically, and we had to replace it.”

Mark Francois MP:
“So it was an engine problem.”

Vice Admiral Chris Gardner: “It was an engine problem.”

Mark Francois MP:
“Okay, because I spoke to a journalist today who said that the MoD flat-out denied that.”

Vice Admiral Chris Gardner:
“Well, I don’t know who in the MoD it was, but it wasn’t me, and I am responsible for those ships.”

Mark Francois MP:
“It was a propulsion problem.”

Vice Admiral Chris Gardner:
“It was.”

Mark Francois MP:

“Okay, well that’s cleared that one up, but even if we put two to sea to defend the carrier and one breaks, in terms of deterrence they must laugh at us.”

Vice Admiral Chris Gardner:
“I don’t think they laugh at the capabilities of a Type 45.”

HMS Diamond is now back with the Carrier Strike Group which is currently in the Middle East.

Commander UK Carrier Strike Group

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
