HMS Protector had a recent stop off at HMNB Gibraltar. The ship, known affectionately as the Royal Navy’s “Swiss Army knife”, arrived for a programmed logistics visit.

The vessel is deployed for 330 days a year, and recently underwent a major refit in preparation for her first visit to Antartica since 2019. 


The Commander British Forces, Commodore Steve Dainton, had a special commendation to hand over.

8 year-old Kian Roche managed to raise over £1000 for the Great Tommy Sleepover initiative. The event challenges families to sleep outside for one night to raise funds for The Royal British Legion Industries. However, the initiative is not just to raise money but also to increase awareness of homeless ex- servicemen and women as it is estimated there are 6,000 veterans currently homeless in and around the UK.

Certificates Presentation

Earlier this year Commodore Steve Dainton, Commander British Forces Gibraltar (CBF), presented certificates to some of the students who have successfully attained further educational qualifications through the Joint Education and Training Services (JETS). Congratulations to all.
