Am surprised this hasn’t received wider coverage (perhaps it has and I have missed it)
Senior officials from the Philippines have thanked the team in charge of the UK Armed Forces’ month-long response to the typhoon which devastated their islands last year. The Royal Navy – spearheaded by HMS Daring and Illustrious – and the RAF in particular played a key role in delivering aid and providing help last November and December.[browser-shot width=”600″ url=”http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/News-and-Events/Latest-News/2014/April/22/140422-Philippines-thank-UK”]
Some interesting points in the linked article, the RAF delivered 220 tonnes and the RN delivered 70 tonnes of aid.
Hang on, surely that is a mistake :)
