HAVING left Portsmouth a week ago, the Royal Navy warship HMS Duncan has arrived in Malaga after taking over as Flagship to NATO’s Standing Maritime Group 2.

Eleanor Stack, commanding officer of HMS Duncan said “My ship’s company is excited about returning to the Mediterranean before undertaking KIPION (Gulf duties) tasking later this year.”

The type 45 destroyer will conduct defence engagement activities alongside NATO partners in the Mediterranean for three months and will lead the group through a series of high profile exercises.

On completion of this tasking, Duncan will sail to the Gulf to take up the UK’s standing commitment to the region.
