We have received Christmas and New Year greetings from our friends at HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH. The ship has completed her 7 and a half month deployment to the Far East and returned safely to Portsmouth.
In so doing she conducted over 2000 fixed wing sorties, 3000 deck landings and 4000 flying hours; by day and night, in weather fair and foul. She sailed 48000 miles over three Oceans, delivering over 1.1M meals along the way.
Her new Commanding Officer (Captain Feasey) confronted and challenged the Russian and Chinese militaries in multiple environments and facilitated the BBC being onboard to capture the highlights for a 6 part documentary. This should be broadcast towards the end of 2022.
