​HMS Forth returns to Gibraltar for routine scheduled visit

HMS Forth has retuned to Gibraltar, following her previous visit in July. The vessel is on the Rock for a routine scheduled visit. 

The Portsmouth based ship is the first of the Royal Navy's next-generation of Offshore Patrol ships. She is the first of five new Offshore Patrol Vessels designed for counter-piracy, anti-smuggling, fishery protection, border patrol, counter terrorism and maritime defence duties, commissioned in April last year.
