NATO Exercise Joint Warrior, October 2019

Recommended Posts

Four photographs that I took of the French navy's amphibious assault helicopter carrier lying at the Clyde Anchorage, Firth of Clyde, Scotland, in October. These were taken towards the end of the Joint Warrior exercise, an exercise that usually takes place twice a year off the West Coast of Scotland. Joint Warrior participants include naval forces, ground forces, maritime patrol aircraft and fast jets, etc. During the October exercise NATO countries taking part included the UK, USA, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Poland, Spain, The Netherlands and Turkey.

These photographs show HMS Albion, an RN amphibious assault ship. In the second image, HMS Albion is shown with RFA Argus behind. RFA Argus is a primary casualty receiving ship, and was formerly a container ship.

Thanks Michael

Kind of nice to see what our navies are doing around the world these days. Like you I live just a short distance from overlooking a navel facility but while we have a carrier or two or a number of  destroyers there throughout the year, we seldom get to see ships from other navies or doing much of anything but coming or leaving the docks.

 

Again thanks for the look.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
