ROYAL NAVY: York returns from Baltic

HMS York, the last Tyne 42 to be built for the Royal Navy, is due to decommission on 27 September at HMNB Portsmouth after 28 years of service. During her last tours of duty, she made a high profile visit to St Petersburg and took part in ship boarding and submarine hunting drills during the annual FRUKUS (France-Russia-UK-US) exercise, hosted this year by the Russian Federation Navy between Baltiysk and St Petersburg. On her return to the UK, HMS York arrived at Sunderland in July and then headed south, taking part in the Bournemouth Air Festival in August. In 2011 she delivered medical supplies to Libya during the conflict there.
