The Royal Navy frigate HMS Argyll will leave Plymouth this lunchtime on it's latest deployment across the Atlantic. Friends and family are expected to wave off the ship with traditional flags and good luck banners from the dockyard, on Devil's Point and the Hoe.
Hundreds of friends and family are expected on the quayside at Devonport to welcome home HMS Argyll. The frigate has been on patrol in the Middle East for more than 6 months.
The trip has made one crewman a record breaker. John Wicking has spent more than 5,000 days at sea during his career.
