HMS Argyll has been working its way through the Caribbean undertaking community projects on nearly every island it has visited. Plymouth based HMS Argyll has visited the Turks and Caicos, British Virgin Islands and Montserrat to demonstrate her ability to provide humanitarian aid, disaster relief and security at sea.But while all of this has been taking place, teams from the ship’s company have been quietly working with local communities on projects that will ultimately help many of the islanders. Twenty members of Argyll’s ship’s company stepped ashore in the Turks and Caicos to repair an old lake side shelter and decking area which was damaged by Hurricane Irene six years ago. Lastly, while at anchor off Montserrat, the ship’s company assisted in rebuilding rain shelters.

HMS Argyll is providing relief support to the UK’s Overseas Territories during the hurricane season.
