HMS Bangor completes training exercise with Saudi Navy

HMS Bangor has just completed two days of sea training with HMS Al Jawf as part of a visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdul Aziz Naval Base (KANB).

During the visit, Bangor trained alongside the ship’s company of Sandown Class Mine Hunter, HMS Al Jawf, and visited Ministry of Defence Armed Forces Projects (MODSAP) personnel, who monitor the supply service that exists between the UK and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

During the exercise period, the Sandown MCMVs trained side by side, conducting minefield lead-throughs, Officer of the Watch Manoeuvres and co-ordinated mine hunting serials. 

The ships also exchanged crew members during the exercise in order to improve understanding and cooperation between the two navies.
