RFA sails to New York
The Royal Fleet Auxiliary Argus has sailed from the docks for New York where she will fly the flag for Britain in Fleet Week to mark the bi-centennial of the 1812 war.
Argus followed in the wake of the Finnish warship FNS Pohjanmaa which paid a courtesy visit here last week. Both ships will spend five days in New York for the celebrations and the Parade of Ships on May 24.
Argus then spends a month on the eastern seaboard visiting various ports before heading south to the West Indies on her deployment.
