Six-part series Royal Navy: Caribbean Patrol can now be seen on Forces TV. The documentary will be screened every Friday at 2100 UKT and repeated on Sunday at 1630 UKT beginning on July 4th.
HMS Manchester, a 30-year old British Destroyer, is on her final deployment – a seven month tour of duty in the Caribbean.
Film-maker Chris Terrill unveils the sometimes frustrating, always exciting, frequently humorous and occasionally terrifying scenes as the ageing warship attempts to track down some of the world’s most ruthless drug smugglers as well as sailing through hurricane driven seas to islands ravaged by killer storms.
