RETURNNG HOME: HMS Brocklesby Arrives In Grimsby

The minehunter HMS Brocklesby arrived in Grimsby on 26 September for an affiliated visit and a welcome home for her commanding officer, Lieutenant Commander James Byron, who was born and raised in nearby Barton-Upon-Humber. After keeping shipping lanes off Libya clear of mines, the mine countermeasures vessel (MCMV) HMS Brocklesby recently returned to the UK after her tour of duty. Her role was key to the mission, and she was described by Commander in Chief Fleet, Admiral Sir Trevor Soar, as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Royal Navy’s contribution to operations in the area.

The ship is affiliated to Brocklesby near Grimsby and West Lindsay, and the crew had the opportunity to visit the area between 28 September and 2 October. HMS Brocklesby was deployed to Libya in January as part of NATO’s Rapid Reaction Force.
