Spectators in Greenwich looked on this morning as HMS Bulwark put on a demonstration of her varied capabilities.
The amphibious assault warship arrived at Greenwich Reach yesterday having recently rejoined the fleet after an eight month refit.
This morning's demonstration, on and above the Thames, allowed the Royal Navy to illustrate the warship's versatility alongside a number of boats and helicopters.
HMS Bulwark’s Commanding Officer, Captain Alex Burton, said:
“HMS Bulwark is the country’s very own Swiss Army Knife. Totally indispensable and phenomenally versatile, she packs a punch with our embarked group of Royal Marines and delivers proven essential support to the softer humanitarian and disaster relief operations."
HMS Bulwark will be moored at Greenwich until Monday.
