HMS ALBION’S VISIT TO İZMİR

Issue 119 - December 2022

In mid October the landing platform dock type amphibious warship of the Royal Navy, HMS Albion arrived in Izmir for a 3 day port visit. During this visit members of the Turkish defense media were given a tour on board.  I had the privilege to take part in this special tour. 

HMS Albion is the UK’s high readiness assault ship providing an afloat command platform for the Royal Navy’s Commander Amphibious Force. Her deployment is part of Operation Achillean.
