Title: HMS Enterprise (Warship Enterprise) H88 IMO 9234020.
Post by: libertyshiplad on January 24, 2019, 06:50:04 pm
Wondered if anyone can confirm if she is on illegal immigrant patrol duties in the English Channel,rather than research/survey.
I think she must be from her recent tracks,have not seen anything in the press though.

ABEILLE LANGUEDOC is showing a similar pattern on the French side, though at the moment is clustered west of Sangatte with the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry COTE D'ALBATRE (which called in Calais yesterday), naval patrol boat SCARPE (P 604), rescue vessel NOTRE DAME DU RISBAN and the Boulogne lifeboat.  The ferry has been chartered by the French government for an exercise today testing planning for a Channel collision.

Many thanks davidships ,interesting exercise.
From Enterprise's recent tracking she does not appear to have been involved,she must be on patrol duties,no others showing.

"HMC Seeker" seems to be on patrol duties now.

HMC SEEKER came back from the Med during last week via Brest arriving at Tilbury on Friday night (15th), AIS still shows her there although its not been updated since she arrived. I believe she is to take over patrol duties in the Channel.

There's also mention of HMC PROTECTOR returning for similar duties

Home Office confirm that one (Not named - Seeker?) is now on patrol although news report shows a photo of Vigilant, maybe a stock photo they used.

A Photo (blurred) also shows 'migrants' on the deck of what looks like a tug.
