Ship's show of might.

County Durham's adopted Royal Navy ship, HMS Bulwark is taking part in a demonstration of the Royal Navy's might next week.

The Royal Navy's most modern amphibious ship will help show off a range of combat capabilities to future military commanders over four action-packed days at sea.

From October 10 to 13, students from the Royal Military Defence Academy will witness crews from warships and a Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship in combat-simulated exercises as they demonstrate boarding operations, anti-air and anti-submarine warfare, a refueling at sea while underway and an amphibious landing.

The students are officers from the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, Army and foreign navies at the college at Shrivenham.

This summer, HMS Bulwark, has played a key role in assisting with the evacuation of Britons from Lebanon.
