HMS Lancaster has a new Commanding Officer at the helm.
After two years at the helm Commander Steve Moorhouse handed over command of the ‘Queen’s Frigate’ to Commander Peter Laughton MBE.
HMS Lancaster is nearing the end of her seven month deployment and has just left Trinidad in the Caribbean after spending five days there.
– The outgoing Commanding Officer, Commander Steve Moorhouse
It has been a great honour to sail Lancaster into Trinidad as we come to the end of a very successful period of counter narcotic operations. For me it is the last of a long line of islands visited this year and as it is the final port that I sail Lancaster into, it is a place that will always be memorable to me.
– HMS Lancaster’s new Commanding Officer, Commander Peter Laughton MBE
It is a tremendous honour to assume command of Lancaster in Trinidad and have the opportunity to bring the ship home after its long and highly successful deployment to the Caribbean. Trinidad and Tobago has a long and rich history with the UK and the Royal Navy in particular, and I believe that our visit has renewed old friendships and helped establish many new ones, in particular with the Trinidad Coast Guard.
Portsmouth-based, HMS Illustrious, is continuing its mission to deliver 500 tonnes of humanitarian aid in the Philippines.
The ship is stationed off the coast of the filipino island of Panay - as the crew focus their effort on dozens of smaller islands to the west - many of which had not received any aid since Typhoon Haiyan.
For the 950 people on-board, though, it means Christmas away from home. Well, ITV Correspondent, Dan Rivers is with them - and sent this
Helicopters from HMS Illustrious have begun to deliver aid, people and equipment to small Philippine islands devastated by Typhoon Haiyan over a fortnight ago.
The Portsmouth-based helicopter and commando carrier arrived in the region to the north of Panay on Monday and immediately began surveying nearby islands to assess their needs.
Recce teams were sent to three islands – Calagnaan, Canas and Bayas – and found extensive damage to homes and local infrastructure with little in the way of long term food supplies.
ITV Meridian presenter Amanda Piper has been speaking to Commander Kerry Harris of HMS Illustrious, as the ship continues to provide aid to the Philippines. The vessel arrived in the country on Monday 25th November.

“It’s absolutely brilliant news. After two months in jail he could have done without another weekend behind bars, but it’s a great relief to know he’s finally out and able to talk to his friends and colleagues.
Our thoughts though are still with Colin’s family – it’s great to see people from the four corners of the world calling for his immediate release and I do hope he’ll be able to join the other 29 soon.”
– Ben Ayliffe, Arctic campaigner at Greenpeace International
“This is news we’ve been waiting for all weekend, but of course our hearts and thoughts remain with Colin Russell and his family.
Since being reunited after their release, our friends in St Petersburg have swapped stories, tears and experiences, hugged friends and each other and told of their great resolve and commitment to defending the Arctic against oil drilling and climate change.
This is not over yet and none of us will be truly happy until all of the Arctic 30 have been released from detention and the charges against them dropped.”
